Making Wolf

Crime & mystery

'It was easy to stay up well past lights out to read just one more chapter - and then one more...' James Oswald

'Brutal, uncompromising and thought-provoking . . . superb' M. W. Craven

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.

Praise for Tade Thompson:

'A magnificent tour de force' Adrian Tchaikovsky

'Smart. Gripping. Fabulous!' Ann Leckie

'Mesmerising' M. R. Carey

Praise for Making Wolf

  • 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...

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

  • With a likable if flawed protagonist, a fast pace and plenty of twists, Making Wolf is both shocking and perceptive - Guardian

  • 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 - The Sunday Times

  • 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...

  • 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 - The Financial Times
