Winner of the LA Times Book Prize for mystery/ thriller.

“It’s Lagos noir—pulpy, peppery and sinister, served up in a comic deadpan ... This book is, above all, built to move, to hurtle forward - and it does so, dizzyingly. There’s a seditious pleasure in its momentum. At a time when there are such wholesome and dull claims on fiction - on its duty to ennoble or train us in empathy - there’s a relief in encountering a novel faithful to art’s first imperative: to catch and keep our attention ... This scorpion-tailed little thriller leaves a response, and a sting, you will remember.” New York Times

“A taut and darkly funny contemporary noir that moves at lightning speed, it’s the wittiest and most fun murder party you’ve ever been invited to.” Marie Claire
