KrimiZEIT-Bestenliste, Juni 2015

Im Dezember 2007 - in Kenia findet gerade ein von Gewalttaten begleiteter Wahlkampf statt, in den united states erklärt (der Halbkenianer) Barack Obama seine Präsidentschaftskandidatur - untersuchen Ishmael und O, zwei Detectives, den Mord an einem großen, schwarzen Mann im berüchtigten Ngong-Wald, außerhalb Nairobis. Als sie nach Nairobi zurückkommen, explodiert in einem berühmten, von politisch einflussreichen Kenianern und reichen Ausländern frequentierten resort eine Bombe. Weil viele Amerikaner unter den Opfern sind, ermittelt auch die CIA, die al Qaida oder somalische Islamisten hinter dem Terroranschlag vermutet. Die beiden Detectives stoßen auf eine Verbindung zwischen ihrem Mordfall und dem Anschlag und entdecken bei einer heftigen, aufregenden Jagd durch Kenia, durch Mexiko, die united states und Kanada einen politisch brisanten Hintergrund: eine overseas operierende Geheimorganisation von hohen politischen Beamten und Managern, die das Ziel verfolgt, die sich immer weiter zuspitzende afrikanische Misere (Gewalt, Korruption, Armut und Stammesfehden) durch gezielte Morde an führenden afrikanischen Politikern zu bekämpfen. In Kenia soll das erste Exempel statuiert werden. Die beiden Detektive müssen sich entscheiden, ob sie Terror im Namen des Guten decken oder bekämpfen sollen...
Der Autor zeichnet auf spannende, sprachlich sehr differenzierte Weise ein realistisches Bild von Afrika, seinen schier ausweglos erscheinenden Konflikten, seinen führenden und den verarmten Schichten, aber auch von Menschen, die sich mit diesen Verhältnissen nicht zufrieden geben.
