Mofe Esiri was an only child of his widowed mother. Born and raised in America, he was being celebrated as the most successful young writer in Africa’s history. He was the first African to top The New York Times Bestseller List, and USA Today extended Bestseller List. His novel also made the Top 100 Amazon.com All-time Bestselling Desires, unrivalled by his colleagues of African origin. Omotola Benson was the face of a popular brand of beauty soap. She was a combination of exceptional beauty, brain, spirit and character. A fair picture for a man’s eyes to fall upon. She held the world to a standstill when she won the Supermodel of the Planet Contest, the biggest and most reputable models contest in the world. Daisy Igho (aka ‘Foxy’) was a pretty and busty actress that was fast becoming the hottest coal in the Nigerian film industry (Nollywood). She was establishing herself as Best African Actress, reaching a level of success to which few could aspire. Now Foxy was Tola’s bosom friend, and she became the tool destiny used to bring Mofe and Tola together. But while she felt her new neighbour (Mofe) and her best friend (Tola) were meeting for the first time, the two were actually getting reacquainted. The friendship between these two beautiful celebrity women was like Mount Zion that could not be moved. But when a man is involved, the thin line between love and hate becomes even thinner. An extremely complex web of events began to unfold amidst discovery of several scandalous family secrets. Matters came to a head when an unidentified cold-blooded killer surfaced, with mafia roots and links to a secret international organisation backed by the highest tier of government. Compelling, provocative, this masterful thriller will leave you spell-bound with its suspense-filled intrigue and nail-biting finishes!

Philip K. Dick was one of the most popular science fiction novelists of the 20th century, but the contradictory and wily writer has troubled critics who attempt encompassing explanations of his work. This book examines Dick’s writing through the lens of ontological uncertainty, providing a comparative map of his oeuvre, tracing both the interior connections between books and his allusive intertextuality. Topics covered include time travel, alternate worlds, androids and simulacra, finite subjective realities and schizophrenia. Twenty novels are explored in detail, including titles that have received scant critical attention. Some of his most important short stories and two of his realist novels are also examined, providing a general introduction to Dick’s body of work.

Gene Sheridan earned the appropriate nickname when Legend Gib Phelps employed at Twirled World Ink-Scary. No one made it out of his old neighborhood without scars both mental and physical. At one time, Scary thought he had a chance that as until his ex found slumming with someone like him wasn't worth his trust fund. No-strings hookups became his go-to when he needed to relieve some tension. Co-owning a bar called Brawlers with his best friend, Tank, made it easy to find a body to use for the night. If not happy he was content with his life, but one man made content seem like such a terrible thing. Elijah Vaughn worried about everything. His life was put on hold at eighteen when his mostly-absent parents died on one of their many adventures leaving him to raise his six-year-old brother, Brody. He'd never had anything or anyone that was just his. When Brody met a tattoo artist named Trouble, Elijah hadn't realized how much it would change his life. He met a massive man named Scary and he was terrified how the man made him feel. Tank Davis lost his voice the night he was attacked and had this throat slit ear-to-ear. It kept him in a world of silence. Silent and intimidating, he scared off more men than he drew to him. His best friend Scary and him made a life for themselves in small town Georgia with their bar Brawlers. Most night everyone could find him working security at the door. Scary called in a favor and Tank met the one man he couldn't resist, proper and upstanding Elijah Vaughn. Can one man accept that there's not one perfect man for him, but two damaged souls who need him to be whole?
