No One Dies Yet by Kobby Ben Ben

No One Dies Yet by Kobby Ben Ben


Best Books of 2023 - Guardian


How do you begin a murder story starring a curious foreigner and an opportunistic local without giving away the entire plot-who died and why? You start with the obvious villain. 2019, The Year of Return. It has been exactly 400 years since the first slave ships left Ghana for America.

Ghana has now opened its doors to Black diasporans, encouraging them to return and get to know the land of their ancestors. Elton, Vincent, and Scott arrive from America to visit preserved sites from the transatlantic slave route, and to explore the country's underground queer scene. Their activities are narrated by their two combative guides: Kobby, their way into Accra's privileged circles; and Nana, the voice of tradition and religious principle.

The pair's tense relationship sets the tone for what becomes a shocking and unsettling tale of murder that is at times funny, at times erotic, yet always outspoken and iconoclastic.


'hilarious, irreverent and coolly self-aware novel that confounds expectation at every turn.'  Guardian
