When Trouble Sleeps

1 Mins read

Leye Adenle takes you right to the heart of Nigerian corruption and electoral fraud in his topical political thriller. When Trouble Sleeps is an entertaining read and a great insight into what makes Lagos such a throbbing, exciting but also dangerous city to live in. Sex, sleaze and violence are part of everyday life, but so are family, friendship and courage. Sunshine noir is on the ascendancy not only because the shadow is darker where the sun shines brighter, as the author himself states, but because there is something hopeful amidst all the darkness.
