Making Wolf by Tade Thompson
Shocking and perceptive' Guardian'It was easy to stay up well past lights out to read just one more chapter - and then one more...' James Oswald
'Engaging' Sunday Times
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.
