In the slums of Accra, Ghana’s fast-moving, cosmopolitan capital, teenagers are turning up dead. Inspector Darko Dawson has seen many crimes, but this latest string of murders—in which all the young victims bear a chilling signature—is the most unsettling of his career. Are these heinous acts a form of ritual killing or the work of a lone, cold-blooded monster? With time running out, Dawson embarks on a harrowing journey through the city’s underbelly and confronts the brutal world of the urban poor, where street children are forced to fight for their very survival—and a cunning killer seems just out of reach.

Review: Children of the Street (Darko Dawson #2)

User Review  - Melanie - Goodreads

I liked the murder mystery. I kept thinking I knew who was the murderer, but it kept surprising me. I wish that some of the details of the death hadn't been so gruesome, but it was a good, quick read. Read full review
