This is a short mystery set in Nigeria. This is important to note since the language and flow of the book is written by someone that is multi-lingual so it might seem stilted if you only speak one language. There were some phrases that confused me because I am from the US and the wording was not what I was used to reading. For example, we use the phrase "million dollar question" and the book has it as "million Naira question". Naira is the currency in Nigeria so it would make sense to use that versus dollars since the book is not set in the US.
The cast of suspects is small but the author did a good job of leading the reader down multiple paths until the killer was revealed. It was quite surprising because this was one character I didn't suspect. I felt that the author did a good job describing the scenery and I was able to picture the various characters in my mind.
If you are looking for a short read this might be a good choice. We give this 3 1/2 paws.
