419 by Will Ferguson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really liked this book.
Recommended by a friend, all I knew going in was that is was about the 419 scams, those emails that you get saying a diplomat has died and is leaving you money in his will if you pay the 5% transfer tax. That was enough for me, along with an interest in modern Africa.
The characters in this book were fully fleshed out, the plot skipped along, at the 80% mark I couldn't put the book down.
Overall very well done. Some mystery, some suspense, a slice of life in modern-day Africa, way to go.
