Making Wolf, Paperback / softback Book

Making Wolf Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'Shocking and perceptive' Guardian'It was easy to stay up well past lights out to read just one more chapter - and then one more...' James Oswald'Engaging' Sunday TimesLONGLISTED FOR THE CWA GOLD DAGGERMeet Weston Kogi, a London supermarket store detective.

He returns home to his West African home country for his aunt's funeral.

He sees his family, his ex-girlfriend Nana, his old school mate Church.

Food is good, beer is plentiful, and telling people he works as a homicide detective seems like harmless hyperbole, until he wakes up in hell. He is kidnapped and forced by two separate rebel factions to investigate the murder of a local hero, Papa Busi.

The solution may tip a country on the brink into civil war.

Making Wolf is the outrageous, frightening, violent and sometimes surreal homecoming experience of a lifetime. Praise for Tade Thompson:'Breathtaking landscapes and intoxicating food and drink . . . endemic corruption, sultry sexuality and casual, slapdash violence . . . A rock-and-roll edge' The Financial Times'Brutal, uncompromising and thought-provoking . . . superb' M. W. Craven'A magnificent tour de force' Adrian Tchaikovsky'Smart.

Gripping. Fabulous!' Ann Leckie'Mesmerising' M. R. Carey
