419

Author(s): Will Ferguson

Popular Fiction

From internationally bestselling travel writer Will Ferguson, author of Happiness(TM) and Spanish Fly, comes a novel both epic in its sweep and intimate in its portrayal of human endurance.


A car tumbles through darkness down a snowy ravine.


A woman without a name walks out of a dust storm in sub-Saharan Africa.


And in the seething heat of Lagos City, a criminal cartel scours the Internet, looking for victims.


Lives intersect. Worlds collide. And it all begins with a single email: "Dear Sir, I am the daughter of a Nigerian diplomat, and I need your help..."


Will Ferguson takes readers deep into the labyrinth of lies that is "419," the world's most insidious Internet scam.


When Laura Curtis, a lonely editor in a cold northern city, discovers that her father has died because of one such swindle, she sets out to track down--and corner--her father's killer. It is a dangerous game she's playing, however, and the stakes are higher than she can ever imagine.


Woven into Laura's journey is a mysterious woman from the African Sahel with scars etched into her skin and a young man who finds himself caught up in a web of violence and deceit.


And running through it, a dying father's final words: "You, I love."
