Suzanne Arruda is the author of six novels in the Jade del Cameron series of mysteries set in 1920s Africa. Library Journal describes Arruda’s protagonist, Jade del
Cameron as “one of the most appealing heroines to appear in the pages on
a mystery.” Of the fifth book in the series, Treasure of the Golden
Cheetah, the Richmond Times-Dispatch declared, “Cinematic
in its descriptions of Africa, compelling in plot — this is a true
whodunit,” while of an earlier series addition the same reviewer noted
that Arruda “melds Dinesen’s evocation of a bygone Africa with
(Agatha) Christie’s ability to fashion a sharp whodunit.” Jade returns
in the sixth installment, The Crocodile’s Last Embrace, due out in
paperback original this fall.
