MEET THE AUTHOR: MICHAEL LAVENTURE
Meet author Michael Laventure as he signs copies of his book, Grand Lure: Africa on March 7th, from 1 pm – 3 pm.
Grand Lure: Africa is inspired by the author’s real-life experiences in West Africa. Set in 2010, French journalist Charles Dufor is on assignment when he finds himself entangled in a French businessman’s real estate project. Convinced this new mission will net the scoop of his career, Dufor strikes out to uncover the source of a pile of cash offered by Ivorian and Togolese “financiers.” Does the money originate with crooked politicians or military? Is it from drugs, stolen international aid, or a common scam job? In a story ripe with action, emotion, danger, and desire, Dufor’s investigation propels him into a corner of Sub-Saharan Africa crammed with greed, corruption, and civil unrest.
