Otis Lovejoy returns home to Nigeria from a five-year trip to America disillusioned and lost to the abrupt changes that have happened since he left the country. He gets a quick dose of reality when he survives a bomb explosion that claimed dozens of lives, including that of his former girlfriend.
What stuns him more is when he discovers that his brother was part of the terrorist bombing. His brother Joshua goes by the alias Ishmael, who's wanted to numerous crimes across the country. Joshua vows revenge and is now on a collision course to confronting a brother he once knew while traveling across an arid landscape littered with spilled blood.
This book was eight years in the making, and I'm glad it's finally seeing the light.
