The Man Booker winning author of A Brief History of Seven Killings launches the first novel in his highly anticipated Dark Star trilogy.

Drawn from vivid African history and mythology, Black Leopard, Red Wolf is a saga of breathtaking adventure and powerful intrigue – a meditation on the nature of truth and power.

It tells the story of Tracker, known far and wide for his skills as a hunter – and he always works alone. But when he is engaged to find a child who disappeared three years ago, he must break his own rules, joining a group of eight very different mercenaries working together to find the boy.

Following the lost boy's scent from one ancient city to another, into dense forests and across deep rivers, Tracker starts to wonder: who is this boy? Why has he been missing for so long? Why do so many people want to keep Tracker from finding him? And most important of all, who is telling the truth and who is lying?

Price: £15 - £25
