About this product
- DescriptionIntroducing Detective Inspector Darko Dawson: dedicated family man, rebel in the office, ace in the field and one of the most appealing sleuths to come along in years. When we first meet Dawson, he s been ordered by his cantankerous boss to leave behind his loving wife and young son in Ghana s capital city to lead a murder investigation: In a shady grove outside the small town of Ketanu, a young woman a promising medical student has been found dead under suspicious circumstances. Dawson is fluent in Ketanu s indigeus language, so he s the right man for the job, but the local police are less than thrilled with an outsider s interference. For Dawson, this sleepy corner of Ghana is rife with emotional land mines: an estranged relationship with the family he left behind twenty-five years earlier and the painful memory of his own mother s inexplicable disappearance. Armed with remarkable insight and a healthy dose of skepticism, Dawson soon finds his cosmopolitan sensibilities clashing with age-old customs, including a disturbing practice in which teenage girls are offered to fetish priests as trokosi, or Wives of the Gods. Delving deeper into the student s haunting death, Dawson will uncover long-buried secrets that, to his surprise, hit much too close to home.
