The epic novel, an African Game of Thrones, from
the Man Booker Prize-winning author of A Brief History of
In the stunning first novel in Marlon James's Dark Star
trilogy, myth, fantasy, and history come together to explore
what happens when a mercenary is hired to find a missing
Tracker is known far and wide for his skills as a hunter:
"He has a nose," people say. Engaged to track down a
mysterious boy who disappeared three years earlier, Tracker
breaks his own rule of always working alone when he finds
himself part of a group that comes together to search for
the boy. The band is a hodgepodge, full of unusual
characters with secrets of their own, including a
shape-shifting man-animal known as Leopard.
As Tracker follows the boy's scent--from one ancient city to
another; into dense forests and across deep rivers--he and
the band are set upon by creatures intent on destroying
them. As he struggles to survive, Tracker starts to wonder:
Who, really, is this boy? Why has he been missing for so
long? Why do so many people want to keep Tracker from
finding him? And perhaps the most important questions of
all: Who is telling the truth, and who is lying?
Drawing from African history and mythology and his own rich
imagination, Marlon James has written a novel unlike
anything that's come before it: a saga of breathtaking
adventure that's also an ambitious, involving read. Defying
categorization and full of unforgettable characters,
Black Leopard, Red Wolf is both surprising and
profound as it explores the fundamentals of truth, the
limits of power, and our need to understand them both.
