MODERN & CONTEMPORARY FICTION (POST C 1945). 'Mensah' is a London crime novel with a difference. It is set in the deprived streets of Hackney amongst the African community, a stone's throw away from the affluent and gentrified parts of the borough and Islington. It pays homage to Raymond Chandler and introduces us to the charismatic Mensah, a black hero for our times. Mensah is the kind of man you go looking for when you have a problem. He will solve your problem for a price. He might cause mayhem and carnage on the way, but he will get the job done. So when a would-be African pop star disappears, her rich husband puts Mensah on the case. Soon things start to go wrong and Mensah finds he is the one being hunted. The mean streets of Hackney spell danger for Mensah. Mensah is one of the great London novels as it introduces the reader to an African city in the heart of London.
