Award winning author, Toni Kan has unveiled the cover for his new book, ‘The Carnivorous City’ published by Cassava Republic Press.
Rabato Sabato aka Soni Dike is a Lagos big boy; a criminal turned grandee, with a beautiful wife, a seaside mansion and a questionable fortune. Then one day he disappears and his car is found in a ditch, music blaring from the speakers. Soni’s older brother, Abel Dike, a teacher, arrives in Lagos to look for his missing brother. Abel is rapidly sucked into the unforgiving Lagos maelstrom where he has to navigate encounters with a motley cast of common criminals, deal with policemen intent on getting a piece of the pie, and contend with his growing attraction to his brother’s wife. ‘The Carnivorous City’ is a story about love, family and just desserts but it is above all a tale about Lagos and the people who make the city by the lagoon what it is.
