Editorial Reviews

Review

“Fans of The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency may have a new hero: Detective Inspector Darko Dawson.”The Wall Street Journal

“An absolute gem . . . mystery fans have an important new voice to savor.”Los Angeles Times

“Full of suspense, humor and plot twists . . . Quartey’s remarkable characters give the reader a worthy whodunit.”Ebony 

“[A] winning debut . . . Dawson is a wonderful creation, a man as rich with contradictions as the Ghana Quartey so delightfully evokes.”Publishers Weekly 

“Engrossing . . . [Quartey] renders a compelling cast of characters. . . . Fans of McCall Smith’s No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency will relish the opportunity to discover yet another intriguing area of Africa.”Booklist (starred review) 

“Move over Alexander McCall Smith. Ghana has joined Botswana on the map of mystery . . . [This] newcomer is most welcome.”Kirkus Reviews

Wife of the Gods is a gem. Memorable fiction is always about discovery, and this fascinating debut delivers much that is new. Kwei Quartey contrasts the modern against the ancient while portraying his native West Africa in a way that is always fresh and alluring. He introduces us to people we don’t know who live a culture we’ve never imagined, and he manages to offer the most elusive of fabulist gifts…an engrossing story we haven’t heard.”—Stephen White, author of The Siege

“A sensitive novel of powerful family passions, set in the unique and vivid colours of Ghana.  It is a complex mystery and with a detective that I hope we meet again.”—Anne Perry, author of Buckingham Palace Gardens

“With great artistry, Quartey takes us on a mystical trip through the heart of Ghana where we visit remarkable characters and find ourselves tangled in unfathomable mysteries.”—Colin Cotterill, author of Curse of the Pogo Stick

“Kwei Quarteys wonderful Inspector Darko Dawson mystery, Wife of the Gods, brings to vivid life a character and a setting that no mystery fan should miss.”—Charles Todd, author of A Matter of Justice: An Inspector Ian Rutledge Mystery

About the Author

Kwei Quartey writes early in the morning before setting out to work at HealthCare Partners, where he runs a wound care clinic and is the lead physician at an urgent care center.

One of AudioFile magazine's Golden Voices, Simon Prebble has received over twenty Earphones Awards and five Listen-Up Awards, and he has been a finalist fourteen times for an Audie Award.
