LONGLISTED FOR THE CWA GOLD DAGGER
Meet 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:

‘Smart. Gripping. Fabulous!’ Ann Leckie
‘Mesmerising’ M. R. Carey
