Excerpt: “Engineer, Engineer,” the Young Minister called out to him as he walked into his office. It was in that ambiguous way that sounded either ominous or playful, and judging from the Minister’s countenance and beaming smile, Ogunmakin knew that it was playful and relaxed. “Honourable Minister,” Ogunmakin countered with a small bow, referring to his office. “Sit down please,” he gestured to the chair opposite him. The Minister was not sitting at his desk. He was sitting on the couch at the reception area of his office, which was another good sign for Ogunmakin.”

Editorial Review

“Thoroughly powerful read! even from an American perspective. The character development is masterful. Several moments left me lost in thought and forced me to embrace a world bigger than mine. A factual glimpse into a part of the world misportrayed by the media...Diamonds are indeed hidden in dirt. WORTH EVERY PENNY. Highly recommend to westerners and westernized Africans. A triumph for what seems to be the authors first published book”. Olan Glover - Amazon Customer
