RICHARD CROMPTON Hell’s Gate
Mollel returns… The gripping follow-up to Richard Crompton’s hugely acclaimed debut, The Honey Guide, a Waterstones Book Club Choice. It’s nearly a year after the events of The Honey Guide and Mollel is far from Nairobi. Undercover and investigating the disappearance of several prominent criminals, Mollel suspects the police are operating a death-squad. To gain their trust he must feign an attack on their principal target and get himself thrown in prison. As the investigation unfolds and events take an unexpected turn, Mollel is forced to come to terms with his Maasai heritage and confront the demons of his past. ‘A compulsive whodunit set in Kenya, where tribal politics can get you killed’ Ian Rankin Richard Crompton is an ex-BBC journalist. His first novel The Honey Guide has been called ‘a smashing debut’ (Financial Times) and ‘outstanding’ (The Guardian) while The Sunday Times called Mollel ‘a fine addition to the ranks of fictional detectives’.
