A modern day cross between James Hadley Chase and Wilbur Smith, the saga unfolds at breakneck speed through the eyes of the author in a witty narration about an ex-Marine’s unwilling role as a hero as he takes on Boko Haram’s expansion in the deepest part of Africa’s most populous nation.

We immerse ourselves into his chaotic and exciting life. The mesmerizing smile of Nneka, Obioma’s childhood sweetheart, adventures with Kalu, his best friend and possibly the cleverest person in the universe. Then the rural village, Umuwe, from which Obioma’s family hails. There his uncle, Iwuagwu, a traditional healer, starts to initiate Obioma into the centuries’ old profession of traditional medicine, promising to pay for contemporary medical studies later, so Obioma can combine traditional and western doctoring skills.

However, over the course of two decades tectonic plates move, and on a pivotal day Obioma joins one of the swelling crowds of hundreds marauding through the city with toppled burning cars lit up in their wake. Obioma, spade in hand, has become a truth-seeker. Who knows where the bodies are buried?
