Michael Stanley recommends
The Missing American (2020)
(Emma Djan, book 1)
Kwei Quartey
"In this twisty page-turner featuring an appealing new protagonist, Kwei Quartey delves into the dark domain of the Ghanaian internet fraudsters. The 'sakawa boys' play their victims like game fish, but they are only part of a vicious web of corruption and witchcraft that reaches all the way to the top. Rich with the colors of Ghana, this is great Sunshine Noir."
