)-- Author John Kenworthy has published The Missionary and the Brute, a chilling murder mystery set in Tanzania, East Africa. This is Kenworthy’s third book, first novel.
The Missionary and the Brute is adult literary fiction. The following excerpt comes from the description on the dust jacket: "In Tanzania, East Africa, the most dangerous predator walks on two legs. In a land where death is a constant, a serial killer is on the loose. The authorities believe the Missionary Jadwin Ross to be that beast. Even he is not sure if anyone is truly innocent – least of all himself."
