Media Diversified and Southbank Centre are giving you the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to see Marlon James discuss his brand new novel Black Leopard, Red Wolf at Southbank Centre on Monday 25 February along with two proof copies of the book.

In this exclusive London launch, the author of A Brief History of Seven Killings will discuss the first novel in his highly anticipated Dark Star trilogy with Ekow Eshun.

Drawn from vivid African history and mythology, Black Leopard, Red Wolf is a saga of breathtaking adventure and powerful intrigue – a meditation on the nature of truth and power.

It tells the story of Tracker, known far and wide for his skills as a hunter – and he always works alone. But when he is engaged to find a child who disappeared three years ago, he must break his own rules, joining a group of eight very different mercenaries working together to find the boy.

Following the lost boy’s scent from one ancient city to another, into dense forests and across deep rivers, Tracker starts to wonder: who is this boy? Why has he been missing for so long? Why do so many people want to keep Tracker from finding him? And most important of all, who is telling the truth and who is lying

She looked older, but when she came in closer I saw a look I would see more

than once, of a woman not aged but ravaged. The boy was sucking hard with

its eyes closed. She grabbed my chin and looked at my face, tilted her head

and peered into my eyes. I tried to hold her stare, but looked away. She

laughed and let go, but still stared at me. Beads upon beads, a valley of neck-

laces right down to her nipples. A ring hanging from a pierced bottom lip. A

double pattern of dot scars from her left cheek curling up to her brow and

down the right. I knew the mark.

“You are Gangatom,” I said.

“And you don’t know who you are,” she said. She looked down at my feet

all the way up to my head, which was getting wild but not as wild as the

Leopard’s. She looked at me as if I was answering questions without opening

my mouth.
