    Amma Darko  
    Die Gesichtslosen (Faceless)

Die Hauptpersonen im Roman "Die Gesichtslosen" sind Fofo, eine Vierzehnjährige, die sich als Straßenkind in Accra durch das Leben schlägt, und Kabria, stolze Besitzerin eines klapprigen VW Käfer, die für die gemeinnützige Organisation MUTE arbeitet.

Kabria trägt viel dazu bei, dass der Mord an Fofos älterer Schwester, Baby T, aufgeklärt wird. Dabei hat sie allerhand eigene familiäre Probleme zu lösen.
