Thompson, Tade, Making Wolf

A gritty thriller set in the blazing sun of the tropics
Meet Weston Kogi, a London supermarket security guard. He returns 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 big-time London 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 set the country ablaze in civil war. Making Wolf is an outrageous, frightening, violent, and sometimes surreal experience of a lifetime. They say you can never go home again. Weston Kogi and the country of his birth may very well pay the ultimate price for his doing exactly that.
