Review: White Leopard

White Leopard
Laurent Guillaume

Solo Camara isn't your usual retired policeman turned  private investigator. He has a past, a dangerous one. Now that he's a wanted man in France he has settled in the West African country of Mali, his father's homeland. It's here in Bamako, the capital city that Camara takes on a case to help a woman whose sister has been arrested for drug trafficking. But, when she turns up dead all hell breaks loose. Camara must follow his instincts if he wants to find out what happened to her, even if it gets him into some tricky situations.

This is a gritty, fast paced, graphic novel full of action, unlike anything I've read recently. The setting is exotic and the characters diverse. The author created the right balance between back story and the main characters dilemma. It was also a good look into how things work, or in some cases don't work in West Africa. I hope Solo Camara will be back with more cases to solve soon.

Thanks to Netgalley and Le French Book for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
