A tale of courage in the face of arrogance that remains eerily relevant on U. Reader Reviews. A heartwarming memoir of motherhood and adoption told through an African American lens. Illuminating and deeply human, Today We Go Home shines a light on the brave military women of the past and present.
Have you ever wanted to solve a murder? With this background, Quartey gives a very immediate and authentic voice and understanding of contemporary life in Ghana. I am sure Darko Dawson fans who have already read Quartey's previous books will find this a very welcome addition! The stories continue to move forward from each other and give a better sense to Dawson's character in both his strengths and weaknesses and with his relationship with his family members, particularly with his wife whose comments often spark ideas that help Darko in his police work and his interactions and there is good amusement in how he interacts with Gifty, his mother-in-law and occasional nemesis.
Darko is very likable professional who strives to be a good father and husband as well as being passionate about his police work without putting himself too much in jeopardy.

Worst of all, when Dawson arrives at the Obuasi headquarters, he finds it in complete disarray. The office is a mess of uncatalogued evidence and cold case files, morale is low, and discipline among officers is lax. On only his second day on the job, the body of a Chinese mine owner is unearthed in his own gold quarry. As Dawson investigates the case, he quickly learns how dangerous it is to pursue justice in this kingdom of illegal gold mines, where the worst offenders have so much money they have no fear of the law.
