Jaws of Death (Paperback)
Synopsis:Jaws of Death is as profoundly enthralling as it is nerve-racking. While a piece of literary ingenuity, it draws from the ossified facts of the history of the aggrieved people of former British Southern Cameroons through the lens of a returning academician. The brilliance of the novel shines from the author's ability to feed the mind with uncanny palpability; the ABCs of the historical aberration that led to the conflict in Cameroon as she faces the destiny of identifying the soul of the nation. The novel is an 'unputdownable' piece, and reads like a beautiful symphony; the gory details notwithstanding. This is a must-read piece." - Lambert Mbom, critical thinker and professional journalist
Jaws of Death is a dramatic narrative sodden with suspense, the family saga of an expectant husband with his young son, waiting for his wife to arrive from abroad just to receive her call from jail. The emotional and psychological trauma so devastating, that, if literary writing was to address topicality, this would be it. A great narrative, really great, heart-throbbing, powerfully engaging, deeply enthralling and exhilarating." - JK Bannavti, author of Leopard Watch, Rock of God, and The Reapers & Freed into Jail
