One of the best things about reading is the chance to visit places you have never been This book takes us to Ghana where an intrepid young policewoman tries to do her job in the face of rampant corruption and even sexual harassment When she stands up for herself she is fired but bounces back as a private investigator Her first case is the missing American who has visited Ghana to visit a woman he met on line but discovers he has been defrauded for money He disappears when he tries to find out who tricked him The investigation goes through the seamy side of Ghana including a voodoo priest who has connections to powerful people It s really interesting and there are a lot of twists and turns It s amazing to read about a place that I had no knowledge of before this and, unfortunately, left me with no desire to visit. The title of Kwei Quartey s new book, The Missing American, does not do justice to this first in a new series featuring Emma Djan, former member of the Ghana Police Service turned private detective I am a fan of mysteries set in countries outside of the U.S and I have read and admired Quartey s previous Darko Dawson series The Missing American far exceeds his previous efforts Emma is a complex character who engages in a complicated set of scams, crimes, and murders that take the reader deep into the world of the sakawa phenomenon the internet scams that permeate Ghana and target Americans and other westerners We also glimpse politics, corruption, and greed, and a touch of sexual harassment too But, Ghanaian society is not all scams and schemes and darkness, and Quartey manages to show us many good sides of the culture, too More than 50 years ago I had a summer job working for a Yale economist whose work focused on Ghana and I was intrigued enough to want to visit Although I never did, my resolve to spend some time in the country has been renewed My thanks to Quartey for reigniting my interest through his excellent novel I am looking forward to reading in this series.Thanks to Soho Press and NetGalley for providing an ARC of this novel in exchange for an objective review. Will link to review when published.
