Picked this book at random. I really enjoyed it and was happy to find out that the author has penned many more. I look forward to reading the series! Great who done it.

Darko Dawson's not keen on being sent out of Accra, Ghana, in this debut police procedural. The death of a young woman has prompted a request for an "expert" detective, guaranteed to set on edge the teeth of the local police. Darko doesn't really want to go to this specific place, as 23 years before, his mother disappeared there on a visit to her sister. The murder of a lovely young pre-med student brings out the worst in many, as the area is still highly superstitious, and some people believe in witchcraft as well. Darko believes in logic, though he has some anger management issues. I began with a later book in the series, but I prefer to begin at the beginning. I was glad to be able to quickly find this first in the series. Quartey gives us a wonderful sense of place, character, pacing, and a feel for what the people wear and eat. Highly recommended.

Kwei Quartey gives us portraits of each character with all their flaws and talents as well as their setting in Ghana. I relished the descriptions of the forest, the traffic, and the customs and dress. Dr. Quartey's talent for description drew me into the story. Darko Dawson is not a perfect person, but he is a sympathetic character. I look forward to reading the next books in the series and hope it will be a long series.
