“Easy Motion Tourist” by Leye Adenle

Book Cover

This is a thriller set in present day Nigeria. British reporter Guy Collins finds himself accidentally involved in a huge story, with a beautiful fascinating woman! Amaka is a guardian angel protector for the extensive clan of working girls in Lagos, meeting very dangerous politicians and criminals in her work. She and Guy nearly lose their lives uncovering the ringleader of a particularly heinous criminal activity: the book is violent and frightening, but well written and compelling. You will like Amaka and Guy, and I suspect there will be a sequel.
