419 - Will Ferguson

Will Ferguson takes readers deep into the labyrinth of lies that is "419," the world’s most insidious Internet scam. 

A car tumbles through darkness down a snowy ravine.

A woman without a name walks out of a dust storm in sub-Saharan 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 a single email: "Dear Sir, I am the daughter of a Nigerian diplomat, and I need your help…"

When Laura Curtis, a lonely editor in a cold northern city, discovers that her father has died because of one such swindle, she sets out to track down—and corner—her father’s killer.  It is a dangerous game she’s playing, however, and the stakes are higher than she can ever imagine.

Woven into Laura’s journey is a mysterious woman from the African Sahel with scars etched into her skin and a young man who finds himself caught up in a web of violence and deceit.

And running through it, a dying father’s final words: "You, I love."
