I'm looking for examples of detective stories, or stories set among the Colonial police force, in Africa during roughly the period 1918-1955. Short stories, novels, even films.

Bonus points if the setting is British East Africa (now Kenya).
I'm more interested in police procedurals than Hercule Poirot mysteries.
Let's stipulate that I'm aware of WHITE MISCHIEF, CASABLANCA and all their friends and relations.
