Product Details

Praise

“Quartey cleverly hides the culprit, but the whodunit’s strength is as much in the depiction of a world largely unfamiliar to an American readership as in its playing fair.”–Publishers Weekly Starred Review

“Kwei Quartey does what all the best storytellers do. He takes you to a world you have never seen and makes it as real to you as your own backyard. In Children of the Street he brings a story that is searing and original and done just right. Inspector Darko Dawson is relentless and I look forward to riding with him again.”—Michael Connelly
 
Praise for Kwei Quartey’s Wife of the Gods
 
“Fans of The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency may have a new hero: Detective Inspector Darko Dawson.”—The Wall Street Journal 

“Mystery fans have an important new voice to savor.”—Los Angeles Times

“Engrossing . . . a compelling cast of characters.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Full of suspense, humor and plot twists.”—Ebony
