Juba Good: The Novel

Previous ramblings by myself and others expounded upon the beautifully ubiquitous term, “Juba Good.” It puts what is passable here in Juba on a distinct scale relative to other locales.

However it now seems that Canadian author Vicky Delany has also discovered this term. And has used it as the title for her new book.

No really.

Juba, South Sudan.
RCMP Sergeant Ray Robertson has spent eleven and a half months serving with the United Nations in the world’s newest country. He’s tired of the chaotic traffic and jostling crowds that fill the narrow streets. Tired of the choking red dust that blows into the capital from the desert. He can’t wait to get back to his wife and kids—and back to policing a world he understands.
But when a young woman—the fourth in three weeks—is found dead at the side of a dusty road with a thin white ribbon wrapped tightly around her neck, Robertson fears that a serial killer is on the loose. In a country plagued by years of extreme poverty, civil war and the struggle to establish a functioning government, the policeman realizes that it’s up to him and his Dinka partner, John Deng, to find the killer before he can strike again.

  1. Vicki here. All e-book versions should be available within the next couple of days. There is a problem however, with the paperbacks in that errors were discovered on the back cover at the last minute, and the whole print run has been redone. So those books might not be available for a couple of weeks.

  2. It’s up now at Amazon.com and Amazon.ca for Kindle. A quick reminder that it is a novella, not a full novel. Intended to be read in one sitting.
