In this modern thriller about one of the most brutal tales of revenge ever told, SLMN returns against a backdrop of sex workers, cocaine traffickers and West African cults.
In a war for survival two opposing syndicates find themselves locked in a faceless war. The cost is high, the price paid in blood. Enemies everywhere. There are the Onisagbe, or widow makers, whose claim to these streets dates back to the time when the city’s first foundation stones were laid. Led by Sol Danjuma, they’ve ruled over Freetown for generations. Then there’s Awon Woli, a group of Liberians from over the border in Monrovia who have established a stronghold in the area after fleeing their homeland during the civil unrest.What started out as a love ends with a corpse being dumped from a battered old truck with a busted tail light at the gates of the Amon Woli stronghold—a message that can’t be ignored. Honor demands a life for a life. Who killed their boy? He’d been out. He had a new life. He had a girl. An apartment above a laundromat in Freetown. He had hope. And now he’s dead. In the search for answers, Daudi M’Beki, one of Awon Woli’s lieutenants, goes in search of the girl who stole his friend’s heart, only to mistakenly kidnap the Onisagbe kingpin’s youngest daughter. Danjuma swears to move heaven and earth to bring his girl home. The only way that’s happening is over the corpses of every last Awọn Woli foot soldier.
