The Honey Guide by Richard Crompton

Meet Mollel, a former Maasai warrior whose beloved wife died in the bombing of the US embassy in Nairobi. Mollel has been assigned to the investigation of the brutal murder of a local prostitute. Despite the resistance of his colleagues, Mollel soon begins to uncover something more far-reaching. But are his warrior's instincts, which have always served him so well, correct? Or will his convictions about the case be turned on their head? The investigation will become more personal to him than he could have possibly imagined...

Recommended by Liam
Set against the backdrop of turbulent elections, THE HONEY GUIDE brings Nairobi and its citizens vividly to life, and introduces a truly unforgettable leading character in crime fiction.

    Sorry to cancel at the last minute, folks, but I haven't finished the book and as much as I'd love to discuss it, as I've really enjoyed it, I can't bear to have the ending spoiled.

    Actually the group does typically have the book on the table, however since nearly all of us had to get the book on the kindle then there weren't any books to have on the table.

    We are also told where to sit by the pub, we don't normally have a choice where we go, but that night someone did go round to check if anyone was waiting elsewhere. I'd recommend asking the bar staff if you can't find the group as they'll point you in the right direction

    was disappointed to walk all the way across Edinburgh to find this venue and no participants turned up! The best literary conversation I had from Edinburgh was with a trade unionist on the train heading out! maybe another time... :)
