by Ozzi Richard Hoffman

While driving from Lagos to Port Harcourt, Nigeria, Inspector MacMahon makes a gruesome discovery next to an overturned car on the side of the road. Long red locks that appear at first glance to be a wig are actually attached to a skillfully decapitated woman’s head. Her body is nowhere to be found, but her diary remains...

By day, Magdalene “Maggee” Hyman was a Scottish-Cuban professor of sexology who taught English in the Democratic Republic of Congo, formerly Zaire. By night she was a winged she-pony who flew from village to village, lustily conquering dark, strong-willed men.

Through Magee’s diary, Inspector MacMahon begins to uncover the mystery in her life and death. Strangely, the two are bonded by a shared love of lush Africa’s landscape and psyche, described here in a style as decadent and lulling as the rhythmic beating of African djembe drums.
