Book Description:

Satans and Shaitans is a conspiracy crime thriller that offers the most intriguing suggestions to the problems of terrorism. In a web of twists and intrigues, the award-winning novel links the terrorism of radical Islamists ripping the North to shreds, political exploits in the southern parts of the country, and a secret political society. At the centre of the turmoil is a beautiful love affair between Adeline and Donaldo.

Here’s a synopsis:

” Set against the backdrop of Nigeria’s ongoing terrorism tensions, Satans and Shaitans tells the story of two powerful men, Chief Donald Amechi and world acclaimed televangelist, Chris Chuba, both members of the internationally renowned Sacred Order of the Universal Forces. Members of the Order from Southern Nigeria, desperate to gain control of their country, deceive an Islamic terrorist organization into carrying out attacks in order to undermine and overrule the Nigerian President, a northerner, by convincing them that their plans would help to bring about Islamic rule, all the while setting them up for failure.”

Advanced Praise

“If a fellowship of masters of intrigue in Nigerian literature exists, Obinna Udenwe should definitely be a senior fellow. His dexterity at infusing crime fiction with this tale of terrorism is truly ingenious.” — Iquo Diana Eke, author of Symphony of Becoming

“Obinna is a fresh new voice, and his foray into conspiracy thriller is a much needed contribution to the contemporary African literary scene.” —Ainehi Edoro, top literary blogger.

About the Author

Obinna Udenwe is the author of the conspiracy crime thriller, Satans & Shaitans, published in Nigeria by AMAB books and in the UK in 2014 by Jacaranda Books.

Satans & Shaitans was a joint winner of the ANA Prose Prize in 2015. His novel addresses very topical issues of terrorism, jihad and politics. He is one of the few African writers fearless enough to delve into controversial issues – in 2015 he eroticised the Nigerian church in fiction in a series titled Holy Sex, published to wide readership and criticism.

In 2015 he established the ‘Crossover Mexico-Nigeria’ writing project. His works have appeared in Fiction365, Ehanom Review, Brittle Paper, Tribe, Kalahari Review, Alariwo, African Writer, Outside In Magazine etc., and anthologised in African Roar, Dreams at Dawn, ANA Review, and the Short Story is Dead Long Live the Short Story. In 2014 he was honoured with the award of the ‘State Literary Icon’ by the Government of Ebonyi State. Obinna Udenwe is a farmer and a democracy enthusiast.

    An online book tour? Fabulous. To follow, I assume I just go to the particular blog on each day as noted, right?

    I’ll surely see him on the day he’s ‘visiting’ your blog, but will check out others too.
