“A gem of a diplomatic thriller.”

Newspaper, blog or website: Publishers Weekly
Date: Jan 4 2022

“Set in Conakry, the capital of Guinea, this gem of a diplomatic thriller from Prix Goncourt winner Rufin (The Red Collar) opens with a crowd of locals gazing at the body of a man hanging by one foot from the mast of a sailboat moored in a decrepit marina... Rufin offers razor-sharp insights into cultural clashes in the former French colony as economical prose drives the intricate plot to a powerful ending. Readers will be reminded of Georges Simenon, only better.”
