Rankin with Rhinos! THE HONEY GUIDE is the first in a breathtaking new series starring detective Mollel.
For all the wrong reasons, our hero, Mollel, is assigned to the investigation of the brutal murder of a local prostitute. Was it a female circumcision operation gone wrong? Or was she the victim of a pimp or one of her customers? Mollel, who cannot leave the truth alone, whatever the consequences, soon begins to uncover something far more far-reaching.
But are the warrior's instincts that have always served him so well, correct? Or will all his convictions about the case be turned on their head? The investigation will certainly become more personal to him than he could have possibly imagined.
Set against the backdrop of turbulent elections, THE HONEY GUIDE brings Nairobi and its citizens vividly to life, and introduces a truly unforgettable leading man in crime fiction.
Richard Crompton is an ex-BBC journalist who moved to East Africa several years ago with his wife, a human rights lawyer who worked on the Rwanda genocide trials. Richard won the DAILY TELEGRAPH Short Story Award in 2010.
