Sleep Well, My Lady
Sleep Well, My Lady (January 2021)
In Sleep Well, My Lady, Emma Djan, Private Investigator, returns for another round on January 12, 2021. Sleep Well, My Lady (SWML). No one can predict exactly what the Covid world will be like by then, but I feel confident that in any case, we will still have books, thank goodness.
This time, Emma and the investigation team tackle a case that has run into a dead end. Almost a year ago, fashion icon Lady Araba was found dead in the bedroom of her upscale home in Trasacco Valley, which I call the Beverly Hills of Accra.
It’s easier said than done when it seems like just about everyone is lying through their teeth. Emma does undercover work from pretending to be a poverty-stricken laborer to a rich woman planning to buy one of the million-dollar homes you see in the short clip. Some part of that undercover work dredges up previous trauma she must work through.
The premise of the novel is from a true story out of Kenya, which I blogged about some time ago. However the end result, SWML is different in several ways from the real-life events.
January 12, 2021 is the pub date. It’s really not that far away. Time flies, even when you’re not having fun.
