S & S Sample 4

Nigerian readers will soon be able to share in the fun of reading Obinna Udenwe’s conspiracy crime thriller Satans and Shaitans.

The novel was published a year ago by UK-based publisher Jacaranda Books. A few weeks ago, news came that AMAB Books and Publisher had signed a deal to make the books available to Nigerian readers. This is exciting news. The novel is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller about a global political and crime syndicate based in Nigeria. The novel is also a riveting web of crazy plot twists and drama that offers a shocking explanation to terrorist organizations such as Boko Haram.

Synopsis:

Determined to overrule the Nigerian President, a corrupt and powerful secret society, The Sacred Order of the Universal Forces, employs a terrorist cell to carry out attacks in Northern Nigeria under the guise of forming an Islamic state. A young man and woman in Southern Nigeria hide their love affair from their fathers. When the girl goes missing, the men employ all their resources to find her, but do they know more than they suggest? As the police search for the missing girl, a series of attacks are launched against members of the Order, with many fatalities. With the terrorist attacks intensifying and The Sacred Order losing control, a race is launched between the police and the secret society to identify the killers, before it is too late…

Udenwe, whose stories have been published here on Brittle Paper, recently won the Association of Nigerian Authors award for Satans and Shaitans.

Congrats to Udenwe!
