The Missing American

DUE IN JANUARY. In The Missing American, mystery novelist Kwei Quartey has created a richly complicated and likable new detective in Ghanan, Emma Djan, who embodies the command to be wise as a serpent and gentle as a dove. Fired from the police force because she won't sleep with the boss for a promotion, Djan begins work as private detective. Her first investigation takes her into the heart of Ghana's Internet scams and the dangerous world of ritual sacrifices of the sakawas who practice them. A crackling debut! Recommended by Kelly
