A car tumbles through darkness down a snowy ravine. A woman without a name walks out of a dust storm in 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...'

At once a chilling thriller about a lonely woman avenging her father's death and an epic portrait of morality and corruption across the globe, Will Ferguson's Giller Prize-winning novel plunges into the labyrinth of lies that is '419', the world's most insidious Internet scam.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'As good a novel about the world in its entirety, from Canada to Nigeria, as I've seen in years, or will likely see in years to come. It stays with you, it makes you think, and it hurts' Gary Shteyngart.
'Sharp and unpredictable, full of surprising, wonderful characters. It isn't just clever - it's spectacular' Roddy Doyle.
'An elegant literary thriller ... 419 is immersive, neatly structured and full of smart dialogue and oblique insights' Guardian.
'A very clever book ... well constructed and compelling' The Sunday Herald.
'Compelling' The Times.
'An ambitious work about the complexities of reparative justice ... elegantly written and evocative of place' The Sunday Telegraph.
'The best and most detailed account of 419 scams I have ever seen ... I can see that this would, and probably will, make a powerful, sweeping moving. And the climax is worthy of any thriller' Financial Times.
'This epic and shocking tale of international corruption and revenge bites hard' Saga.
'A taut tale of internet deception' Vogue.
