LA FILLE QUI N’EXISTAIT PAS (the French title of CITY OF SAINTS AND THIEVES) has just received a fabulous review in Le Monde Afrique!


“The American Natalie C. Anderson, author of this thrilling polar, holds the reins of her story so well that every revealed secret opens a new mystery and advances us from discovery to discovery. But beyond the plot, the book provides a captivating and realistic dive into the political and social complexity of this region of the Great Lakes where political and financial interests are combined and too often exceed the common good.”
