TA LĘ: Book 1: Knowledge by Yessoh G.D. introduces Kobenan who, at a very young age, lands an important job in the enigmatic West African government of Côte d'Esperance. He works for the S-cell, a shadowy unit of the government that deals with mystical occurrences and sorcery. Investigating a high-profile murder case with agent Biafle, Kobenan finds himself thrust into the whirlwind of a world he never knew existed, a mystical world co-existing with the physical. With the political stakes raised and the path getting more complex with every step they take, he must come to grips quickly with the mystical world unfolding before him. Can he solve this murder before it is too late?
TA LĘ: Book 1: Knowledge introduces an Africa that readers will find fascinating, and while this is a fictional work, it is very relevant with a stunningly imagined setting in typical traditional Africa with secret societies, strange and mystical practices, rituals, and involvement in sorcery. The author presents a young protagonist who occupies an enviable position in the secret S-cell; he is intelligent and brave, but with limited knowledge of the world he inhabits. When thrown into a murder case, he has to do more than analyze files. He must grow quickly and learn to accept the startling truths that stare him in the face. Yessoh G.D.’s tale is twisty, written in a unique and captivating voice. The world-building is impeccably accomplished, a world that is steeped in mystery and the author does an impeccable job of exploring the thin line between the rational and the troublingly mystical, deftly illustrating the duality in African existentialism while developing strong plot points and characters that are solid and elaborately written.
