A man torn between two continents finds himself in a dangerous confrontation between tradition and corruption. Solo is a former cop who ran away from a dark past in France to start his life over again in Bamako, Mali, as a PI. An ordinary case turns out to be not so ordinary. The drug mule gets her throat slit, the French lawyer is too beautiful and too well-informed. The cocaine is too plentiful. This is classic noir with a modern twist set in Africa.

There are conditions attached: she must first find three priceless statues. Her father’s death sparked much greed, and Marion finds herself facing sharks, schemes, fences, traps, scams and attacks. Her quest draws her into a world where people will kill for a love of beauty.
