Summary

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.

A Pleasure When an Artist Does Not Repeat Himself

Anxiously awaited "Making Wolf" by Tade Thompson, set in a fictional West African country, and with read with  cool and soothing calmness; makes you think, wonder, and engages both intellectually and emotionally.

Coming at the heels of the highly acclaimed  "Rosewater Trilogy" - science fiction set in futuristic Nigeria, "Making Wolf" is different. The plot is deceptively simple - the investigation of the assassination of a popular leader.  Motivations are maddeningly complex. Characters are eccentric and intelligent. What remains is the question: will they ever get it right? 

I would never want to rush genius but I am waiting for Tade Thompson's next book.
PS. Only wished Clifford Samuel would have pronounced "Tade" correctly.
