Description
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo meets Gone Girl in this enthralling murder mystery set in Kenya.
 
In the shadows of Sangui City, there lives a girl who doesn't exist. After fleeing the Congo as refugees, Tina and her mother arrived in Kenya looking for the chance to build a new life and home. Her mother quickly found work as a maid for a prominent family, headed by Roland Greyhill, one of the city’s most respected business leaders. But Tina soon learns that the Greyhill fortune was made from a life of corruption and crime. So when her mother is found shot to death in Mr. Greyhill's personal study, she knows exactly who’s behind it.
With revenge always on her mind, Tina spends the next four years surviving on the streets alone, working as a master thief for the Goondas, Sangui City’s local gang. It’s a job for the Goondas that finally brings Tina back to the Greyhill estate, giving her the chance for vengeance she’s been waiting for. But as soon as she steps inside the lavish home, she’s overtaken by the pain of old wounds and the pull of past friendships, setting into motion a dangerous cascade of events that could, at any moment, cost Tina her life. But finally uncovering the incredible truth about who killed her mother—and why—keeps her holding on in this fast-paced nail-biting thriller.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Tina is a 16-year-old Congolese refugee turned Kenyan street gang member and thief. Narrator Pascale Armand's convincing portrait captures Tina's many contrasts--her toughness and tenderness, duplicity and honesty, questioning and certainty. Armand also makes clear Tina's unswerving determination to care for her half-sister, Kiki, and to discover who murdered her mother. Armand depicts secondary characters just as strongly, particularly Greyhill, the wealthy American who fathered Kiki. He seems kind to Tina's face and callous during overheard conversations. And his son, Michael--is he a love interest, or an enemy? As Armand switches easily between both accents and personas, the story's tension remains high amid scheming, sleuthing, and Tina's confusion about personal and political situations that surround her. Throughout, Armand's pacing, character dramatizations, and emotional notes never fail. S.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award �� AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
