I loved how Kelly James wrote a book honoring the women she met in her adventures in Africa, instead of just describing those adventures. The sights and sounds in this book will stay with me a long time. The story, Gorillas and Banana Beer, is a tale of hope in the face of no possible reason to hope, of a young man's discovery of a reason to live and give back when he found no life in our culture, of the bravery and strength and endurance.

Kelly James was a "world-traveling private investigator," and she's now the author of Dancing with the Witchdoctor: One Woman's Stories of Mystery and Adventure in Africa, in which she confronts the dangers of political factions, poachers, harsh climates, and brutal landscapes. I once danced with a witchdoctor in a posh Harare nightclub. She was not the best dancer in town (her "oak tree" was terrible), but she could cure impotency with termite eggs, and knew all the words to George Michael's song "Father Figure.

When the Women Come Out to Dance. Big John wailing on his old Harmony guitar, James Cotton on harmonica, and a pickup bass player. Each volume of this series of Best American Mystery Stories has certain peculiarities and certain similarities as it is being compiled. First, and perhaps most important, is that one will be struck by the extraordinarily high quality of the fiction between the covers. Whether by established authors, lesser-known writers, or first-timers, the excellence of the prose cannot be denied.

The mystery story: Last night I was walking home next to the river Thames, when something strange happened to me. There was a large full moon in the sky and everything was quiet. I was tired and lonely and I’d just had a few pints of beer in my local pub, so I decided to stop by the riverside and look at the moon for a while. I sat on some steps very close to the water’s edge and looked up at the big yellow moon and wondered if it really was made of cheese

I love true stories about adventures in faraway places. And this fine book certainly meets that test. Kelly James gives us a short introductory chapter in which she describes her upbringing on a ranch in the American northwest. She was raised to ride and shoot and live with adventure. Soon, she realized she didn't want to be relegated to a typical female role in life. And so she became a private investigator and has traveled all over the world in a wide variety of international business investigations. Mostly, she works in Africa and the book is comprised of four separate stories about a few unique assignments.

Her writing style is fast-paced, breezy and has the sense of adventure that obviously drives her life. There's not one boring sentence in the whole book and the action never stops. I read these stories with the kind of attention that kept me breathless and turning the pages as something new happens on every page. And my sense of wonder at her bravery and willingness to take risks never ceased. I just couldn't stop reading and was sorry when this 235-page book ended.

In the first story she investigates a mysterious death of a wealthy plantation owner. In the second story she travels into the depths of gorilla country. In the third story she helps a young man visit his war-torn land. And, in the last story, she is hired to investigate a young female African doctor's disappearance. Often, she fines herself in personal danger and has is forced to survive in a very hostile environment. Each one of these stories kept my eyes glued to the page. I couldn't put the book down until they were finished.

"Dancing With the Witchdoctor" was a mini-adventure for me. It brought me to places I've only dreamed of visiting and made me identify with the author's courage, stamina and sense of adventure. For me, reading this book was like being picked up by a whirlwind and experiencing the trip of my life. I loved it!

Highly recommended.

For anyone who ever dreamed of Africa, Kelly James takes you there; not the sanitized safari wagon tours, but the real, the scary, the truly exotic Africa. The characters with which she peoples her stories are individuals you would like to have known, would have been privileged to know. Enjoy!

I was very touched by her relationship with her characters and the courage and stamina with which she faced her adventures. I have known Kelly James for years; she is indeed a very brave and amazing woman. I (Arla Smith)was especially touched to be included in her thanks at the end of the book.

A great adventure, an exciting, exhilirating trip with a fascinating woman through a world few of us will ever know. Loved every page.

Private investigator Kelly Clark has an adventurous spirit. That spirit leads her to take investigative contracts on the forgotten continent of Africa. She stares death in the face and somehow lives to write about it.
That synposis sounds like a page-turning novel, but this book is much better because it is true. Kelly James is a red-headed American who fell in love with adventure when she as a youngster and tells of her African experience in four stirring vignettes. She is a modern renaissance woman. A master of African culture, regional history and the human condition. She also writes incredibly well.
This book is not for the weak or soft any more than Indiana Jones would appeal to those of high sensitivities. James' Africa is harsh and real. As the sun beats down, mankind also often does the same to its fellow earthly inhabitants. But the lessons James teaches are invaluable. Her love for Africa and its people is indisputable. James teaches us lessons poignantly and with page-turning adventure. Western arrogance can be very dangerous.
A must-read, I recommend this book to all readers who don't need life candy-coated. A winner!

The striking cover and provocative title drew me to this book and I was NOT disappointed! Kelly James' first work is part autobiography, part adventure, part observer--always fascinating. I hope she'll publish more of her adventures with deeper contextual references to the political-social background of her work in Africa. While I am awestruck by the heroic acts of individuals she describes, I found myself wanting to know more details.

(Later edit: OK maybe I was naive, but I was still impressed and hope the author is for real and will come forth with another book. After reading the other reviews, especially of people who have been to those locations, it raises questions about authenticity, but who can I trust--the author or the other reviewers?)
