People Like Her (2021)
Ellery Lloyd
"Don’t read this book on the train—I missed my stop . . . On one level, People Like Her is a thrilling, witty page-turner that makes you laugh out loud. But on another, it is a sharp dissection of a very modern way of life [and] will make you look at 21st century life in a different way."

Lightseekers (2021)
Femi Kayode
"I loved the start of this brilliant new series. Such a clever concept— and a really unusual hero in investigative psychologist Philip Taiwo. Lightseekers is both a page-turner and a fascinating analysis of a crisis in Nigeria."
