The Sun By Night unravels the secrets surrounding the death of an Accra prostitute. Framed around a court case involving Manu, a respectable and wealthy businessman, it is a gripping tale of murder, courtroom shenanigans, and intense societal conflicts. Among others, the novel explores themes and tensions of familial and traditional commitments, individual freedom, marriage and love, and class exploitation to weave an enduring tapestry of great human value. Set in a country still grappling with the heavy legacies of the colonial experience, The Sun by Night combines old and new to demonstrate that the quest for truth and justice belongs to each one of us.
