Tropic of Night, by Michael Gruber

My father-in-law asked me if I had a suggestion for a terrific book, as a follow up to my recommendation of "The Passage."   Immediately after, I finished this novel.  Wow -- here's the recommendation, and an addition to my top 10 list for 2011.   Is that synchronicity?

This is a strange book.   It is a mix of anthropology primer, West African mysticism, police procedural and love story.   It isn't an easy book to read.    But it is an excellent novel that I highly recommend.
