Head of Zeus
419
419 by Will Ferguson

HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO FOR REVENGE?

A car tumbles through darkness down a snowy ravine. A woman without a name walks out of a dust storm in Africa. And in the seething heat of Lagos City, a criminal cartel scours the Internet, looking for victims.

Lives intersect. Worlds collide. And it all begins with one woman's desire to take revenge on the conmen that killed her father.

At once a thriller about a lonely woman trying to reclaim her father's memory and a stunning novel of moral ambiguity, uncertainty and corruption. Will Ferguson's Giller Prize-winning novel plunges into the labyrinth of lies that is '419,' the world's most insidious scam.

REVIEWS
'As good a novel about the world in its entirety, from Canada to Nigeria, as I've seen in years, or will likely see in years to come. It stays with you, it makes you think, and it hurts'
