A small West African town …
A dark secret …
A chilling murder …

Set in Ghana, the action moves compellingly back and forth between the capital city of Accra and a town in the Volta Region.

For fans of Alexander McCall Smith comes a debut mystery novel that introduces a marvelously intuitive detective and a rich cast of characters.

Read an excerpt HERE.

” Crisp, engrossing debut.. Fans of McCall Smith’s No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency novels will relish the opportunity to discover yet another intriguing area of Africa. “

Booklist, Starred Review

“Move over Alexander McCall Smith. Ghana has joined Botswana on the map of mystery . . . more sociological than McCall Smith’s, his setting [is] more rural and susceptible to the ways of magicians….[This] newcomer is most welcome. “
Kirkus Reviews

” Quartey’s winning debut, a police procedural set in modern Ghana, introduces gifted detective Darko Dawson … a wonderful creation, a man as rich with contradictions as the Ghana Quartey so delightfully evokes … readers will be eager for the next installment in what one hopes will be a long series. “
Publishers Weekly

” Like The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency? You’ll love Wife of the Gods “
