If you look well enough, you will find a recent increase in the number of crime fiction books set in African locations. This is one of the more popular ones released in the last two years.

Very readable, easily identifiable Lagos locations that make the plot very believable too. The plot starts very well, lots of tension and builds up nicely but gets muddled along the way. The end was a bit too predictable, and the knots are the end were not only easily tied but seemed to give an impression that the writer had a deadline with a mandate not to leave any part unresolved.
For all the realistic plot, the altruistic mission of the main character, Amaka, was a bit too far-fetched in present-day Lagos. In all, it is a good read, and I will willingly dig into the sequel which is already sitting pretty on the shelf.
