Matthew Head wrote several mysteies set in Central Africa, such as The Congo Venus and The Cabinda Affair, they have a nice Anglo-American vibe as the narrator is English, but two other recurring characters are American ladies, a doctor and a missionary. I have enjoyed them a lot.
Elspeth Huxley of The Flame Trees of Thika fame, wrote three mysteries set in colonial East Africa -- Murder on Safari, The African Poison Murders and Murder at Government House.
Robert Wilson, who has had recent success with mysteries and thrillers set in Portugal, wrote an earlier series set in West Africa, starting with Instruments of Darkness and followed by The Big Killing. The stories are pretty good, but quite violent. The first was notable for the elaborate and sometimes showstopping metaphors the author liked to use. "The Hotel Le Benin looked as refreshed as if it had just flown in from a short holiday in the Cote d' Azur.'"
