Publisher's Summary

Katherine Yeboah's marriage to Solomon Vanderpuye is all the talk of Accra high society. But when it becomes apparent that Katherine is infertile, Solomon's extended family accuses her of being a witch, hounding her until the relationship is so soured Solomon feels compelled to order Katherine out of the house they share. Alone on her last night there, Katherine is brutally murdered by an intruder wielding a machete.

Chief Inspector Darko Dawson of the Ghanaian federal police has personal as well as professional reasons to find the killer fast: Katherine was the first cousin of his wife, Christine, who is devastated by the tragedy. As Darko investigates, he discovers that many people close to Katherine had powerful motives to kill her, including Solomon, her husband; James Bentsi-Enchill, her lawyer and ex-lover; and her filthy rich pastor, Bishop Clem Howard-Mills. In order to expose the truth, Darko must confront the pivotal role religion plays in Ghana - and wrestle with his old demons the investigation stirs up.

Death By His Grace Has Left Me Speechless!

A Darko Dawson murder mystery so different, yet filled with plenty of great characters to keep any fan guessing to the very end. I could not stop listening. Since there will be no spoilers here, let me say I am STUNNED into silence as I have finished.

What a cliffhanger!

This has been the best book of the series. I could not decide who the killer was until the very end. I wont spoil it here. My only knock is I dont think this reader gets into the character as well as Hoffman did. Still a great listen. Cant wait for the next one. I hope.
