A man torn between two continents finds himself in a dangerous confrontation between tradition and corruption.
Solo is a former cop who ran away from a dark past in France to start his life over again in Bamako, Mali, as a PI. An ordinary case turns out to be not so ordinary. The drug mule gets her throat slit. The French lawyer is too beautiful and too well informed. The cocaine is too plentiful. This is hard-boiled noir with a modern twist set in West Africa.
"Fans of classic hard-boiled PI fiction will relish Guillame's first book to be translated into English.... He delivers a tale of high-level corruption that will resonate with James Ellroy readers." (Publishers Weekly)
"This is crime fiction as hard-boiled as it gets. Guillaume, winner of literary prizes in France, is likely to win fans here, too." (Booklist)
"West Africa is brought vividly to life in this enthralling, fast-paced noir." (Foreword Reviews)
