Description

A stunning police procedural debut from one of Nigeria's young up-and-coming talents, Treachery in the Yard introduces an electrifying new setting to the world of international crime fiction

Detective Peterside is drawn into the politics of Nigeria when a bomb goes off at Mr. Pius Okpara's home. Mr. Okpara is locked in a conflict with a political rival, as both men are seeking their party's nomination prior to the general election.

As Detective Peterside investigates, one murder leads to another and soon events appear to be spiraling out of control. The more he digs, the more corruption surfaces. Soon he is not sure whom to trust, including even his own mentor.

An intriguing blend of locale and familiar police procedure, Treachery in the Yard provides a unique brand of international suspense.
