Akashic Books Noir series stops in Addis Ababa for some stories about the dark side of Ethiopia. The stories blend myth, history, memory and regret related to dealing with the county’s traumatic recent past.
The latest from Creston Mapes, “Let My Daughter Go” delivers everything his dedicated disciples have come to expect – inspiring heroes and despicable villains, along with plenty of action and non-stop tension.
