Making Wolf

«The fictional country of Alcacia is vividly, lovingly drawn with no blemishes spared: its "blinding retina-shattering sunlight", breathtaking landscapes and intoxicating food and drink. So too is the intensity of human relations: endemic corruption, sultry sexuality and casual, slapdash violence. Thompson . . . brings a rock-and-roll edge to the story»

LONGLISTED FOR THE CWA GOLD DAGGER

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.

'Smart. Gripping. Fabulous!' Ann Leckie

The Financial Times

«Brutal, uncompromising and thought-provoking, this is a superb book»

M. W. Craven

«Alcacia may be fictional, but Thompson knows its land, culture and politics intimately, and brings a palpable sense of threat to this spare, engaging thriller»

The Glasgow Herald

«With a likable if flawed protagonist, a fast pace and plenty of twists, Making Wolf is both shocking and perceptive»

Guardian

«Satisfyingly complicated without ever feeling contrived... such skilled writing it was easy to stay up well past lights out to read just one more chapter - and then one more...»

«Engaging . . . Thompson is a witty, versatile writer. A British-born psychiatrist, he uses his knowledge of his parents' Yoruba culture to brilliant effect in this unusual addition to the private-eye genre»
