Kwei Quartey, who is a doctor in Southern California and whose father is Ghanian, travels to Ghana frequently to do research for his books. He is obviously deeply touched by the plight of the street children of Accra. The dedication is "To all those who dare to care". The deaths of the teenagers, whose bodies are left in the filthiest places imaginable, and the descriptions of the lives of their compatriots is heart wrenching. The reader knows of the motives of suspects that Darko is unaware of as well as those that he does know of. The reveal is a surprise and the ending is uplifting.
