BW36: Whodunit Bookology - Darko Dawson

Our September Whodunit Bookology detective is Detective Inspector Darko Dawson and his story is set in Accra, Ghana. We are introduced to Inspector Dawson in Wife of the Gods, the first book in a 5 book series written by Kwei Quartey.

Kwei Quartey was born in Ghana where both his parents lectured at the University of Ghana. Although he loved books and writing, during Kwei's teen years he decided to become a doctor. He never gave up his love for writing and found a way to blend both his writing and medical career. He currently resides in Pasadena, California, and works at a wound care clinic three days a week, dedicating the rest of his time to writing.

There are a number of ways to complete the bookology challenge, including but not limited, to the suggestions below:

Read the first book in the series.
Read one book per letter in the character's first or last name.
Read one book per letter in the author's first or last name.
If you're really ambitious, one book per letter in the character's first and last name.
Follow in a character's footsteps and read a book set in the country or time period of the character.
