The Golden Scales : A Makana Investigation Paperback / softback

Part of the A Makana Investigation series


Former police inspector Makana, in exile from his native Sudan, lives on a rickety Nile houseboat in Cairo, scratching out a living as a private investigator.

When he receives a call from the notorious and powerful Saad Hanafi, he is thrust into a dangerous and glittering world.

Hanafi is the owner of a star-studded football team and their most valuable player has vanished.

His disappearance threatens to bring down not only the businessman's private empire but also the entire country.

Makana encounters Muslim extremists, Russian gangsters and a desperate mother hunting for her missing daughter, as his search stirs up painful memories, leading him back into the sights of an old and dangerous enemy...
