Darko Dawson is a detective living in Accra, the capital city of Ghana. He is sent to the small village of Kentanu to assist in solving the murder of a young female health worker. This is also the place where his mother disappeared many years ago.The story is full of interesting characters and I enjoyed learning more about Ghana. I look forward to the next book in the series.This is a good read-alike for the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith.
