Last Orders at Harrods (2005)
(The first book in the Last Orders at Harrods Trilogy series)
A novel by Michael Holman

 

"Delightful, entertaining, profound."
Alexander McCall Smith


Charity Mupanga is the widowed owner of Harrods International Bar (and Nightspot)--a favorite meeting place for the movers and shakers of Kibera. While she can handle most challenges--from an erratic supply of Worcestershire sauce, the secret ingredient in her cooking, to the political tensions in East Africa's most notorious slum and a cholera outbreak that follows the freak floods in the state of Ubuntu--some threatening letters from London lawyers are beginning to overwhelm her. Well-meant but inept efforts to foil the lawyers by Edward Furniver, a former fund manager who runs Kibera's co-operative bank, bring Harrods International Bar to the brink of disaster, and Charity close to despair. In the nick of time an accidental riot, triggered by World Bank President Hardwick Hardwicke's visit to the slum, coupled with some quick thinking by Titus Ntoto, the 14-year-old leader of Kibera's toughest gang, the Mboya Boys United Football Club, help Charity--and Harrods--to triumph in the end.
