9789774167515: Whitefly: A Novel (Hoopoe Fiction)

The traffickers. The drug dealers. The smugglers.
They know what it takes to get a gun into Morocco, and so does Detective Laafrit.
When a fourth corpse in three days washes up in Tangier with a bullet in the chest, Laafrit knows this isn't just another 'illegal' who didn't make it to the Spanish coast.
As his team hunts for the murder weapon, Laafrit follows a hunch and reveals the killer at the heart of an international conspiracy.
A fast-paced crime thriller from the Arab west.

About the Author :


Born in Mekne s, Morocco in 1958, Abdelilah Hamdouchi is one of the first writers of police fiction in Arabic and a prolific, award-winning screenwriter of police thrillers.

Translator Jonathan Smolin is the author of Moroccan Noir: Police, Crime, and Politics in Popular Culture (2013). He lives in Hanover, NH.

Review :


"A refreshing and refined crime thriller . . . . Events unfold cleanly, with a sniper's precision. Whitefly is an entertaining crime novel, a slice of insight into police culture. However, it is also a subtle hint at some of the most pressing issues tormenting contemporary Morocco, bubbling beneath the surface, and of all that cannot be filed away and put on the backburner quite as easily as a police case."--Banipal


"Abdelilah Hamdouchi seems to have found the formula for the emergence of the Moroccan detective novel."--Libération Kaleidoscope


"The plotting is tight and watching the story's resolution unfold is a delight. . . . As a guilty-pleasure read, it is a winner."--M. Lynx Qualey, The National


"Much is packed into this relatively short, fast-paced novel. "--Sally Bland, The Jordan Times


"A fast-paced crime thriller from the Arab west."--Darf Publishers blog


"An enjoyable quick read, a police procedural offering a decent crime-story as well as a nice slice of local color and customs."--The Complete Review


"Hamdouchi is known for his detective fiction and screenplays and has written the scripts for seven police thrillers in Morocco. No surprise, then, that his fast-paced novel, full of twists and turns, is an entertaining read, but the text also captures the tragic fate of undocumented Moroccan immigrants who are exploited by those more corrupt and powerful in Spain."--Gretchen McCullough, Exchanges Literary Journal


"In the saturated field of crime fiction, Whitefly is as canny as the waxy, winged creature to which it owes its name. Set in contemporary Morocco, Hamdouchi lifts the blanket on tangier's twisted network of traffickers, dealers and dubious crime investigators. Hamdouchi is an artful storyteller unafraid of loose ends, and will lift the ground from beneath you just when it feels most solid."--Tank Magazine
