419 ~ Will Ferguson

419-will-ferguson419, the Scotiabank Giller Prize winning novel by Will Ferguson has just arrived at Talewind Books  in trade paperback.  This is 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.  In the seething heat of Lagos City, a criminal cartel scours the internet looking for victims.  Lives intersect.  Worlds collide.  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.
