Books by the Author

These thrillers are set in familiar Ghanaian cities and locales.


    On an amazing fashion week afternoon in Accra, Akua Sakyibea Asabea somehow survived every young woman’s worst nightmare at the hands of the biggest icon in Ghana’s fashion and entertainment industry. No one expected that her vengeance would bring a nation down to its knees.

  • Tweet Code Sigma

    The tweet in the passionate heat of Ghana’s presidential election was so ordinary it could best be described as nondescript. But Major General Yakubu Saani discovered it was the callsign between the Election Management Board and high-level Military Commanders to roll out a plot to steal the election. These were his choices: Loyalty to a Commander-in-Chief willing to remain President over the ashes, and loyalty to the Constitution that enabled his kleptocracy.


    West Africa had gone mad again. Coups and counter-coups prevailed from North to South. Civil wars ran like wild fire from East to West. Everywhere was a bloody abattoir. In Liberia, the foolishness was perhaps, even more so. In the thick of that madness, a young medical student, seemingly not smart enough to comprehend the extent of the danger, arrives from Ghana. His one motive is the rescue of his twin – and anyone else smart enough to come along.

  • Vawulence

    Historians say a total of five wars were fought between the Asante tribe and the British colonialists. Survivors of the last war insist only four wars were fought. The fifth was no war at all, for wars have rules, formats, plans and truces. When none of these exist, only one thing remains: Vawulence. Which is usually the case when an Asante princess declares war.

  • I'm not your quintessential reader, but when word got out of a thriller set in Ghana, I reached out for a brain-smacking, fast-paced, unforgettable copy of the Executive Hallucination. After Wakanda, goodness knows we all needed another African super-hero, and the characters in the book fit the description!

  • Executive Hallucination is a suspenseful, imaginative historical fiction which keeps the reader on the edge even after they have finished the book. The characters still live on in your imagination afterwards, and you can't help going back to it time after time.

  • This is a captivating story about West African power struggle and a brother's love for his twin sister. I could hardly put the book down once I started and was literally transported to the scenes in the story. This is a must-read for lovers of thriller.

  • The author creates relatable characters and arranges the plot in ways that keep you glued to the end. It also encapsulates my favourite themes in a novel: suspense, adventure, and the right dose of romance. And the book keeps calling me back to read again.
