Publisher's Summary

For all the wrong reasons, our hero, Mollel, is assigned to the investigation of the brutal murder of a local prostitute. Was it a female circumcision operation gone wrong? Or was she the victim of a pimp or one of her customers? Mollel, who cannot leave the truth alone, whatever the consequences, soon begins to uncover something far more far-reaching. But are the warrior's instincts that have always served him so well correct? Or will all his convictions about the case be turned on their head?
The investigation will certainly become more personal to him than he could have possibly imagined. Set against the backdrop of turbulent elections, The Honey Guide brings Nairobi and its citizens vividly to life, and introduces a truly unforgettable leading man in crime fiction.

What the Critics Say

"A fascinating debut novel set against the turbulent Kenyan 2007 election in which more than 1,500 were killed in riots, this is the first in a series that will bring Nairobi and its colourful citizens vividly to life." (Irish Independent)
"A vivid and sensitive depiction of an alarmingly volatile situation, riven with tribal divisions, in a place where glittering tower blocks and shopping malls sit cheek-by-jowl with tin shacks. This, however is more than mere local colour, with traditions, beliefs and conflicts being properly defining factors in the characterisation of a strong cast." (The Guardian)
"Former BBC journalist Crompton’s debut features a unique voice, an in-depth look at diverse Kenyan rites and political chicanery, and a hero who, one hopes, is just at the beginning of his fictional career." (Kirkus Reviews)
