The Hunger Games meets The Thief Lord in this enthralling murder mystery set in Kenya.

In the shadows of Sangui City, a street-thief called Tina patiently plots her revenge. Her mother has been shot dead at the home of one of Kenya's richest businessmen, and Tina is sure she knows who's to blame.

When a local gang asks her to steal from his home, it's the chance Tina has been waiting for. But as she steps inside, old wounds resurface and she is caught red-handed by his son, Michael. The pair set in motion a cascade of dangerous events that could, at any moment, cost Tina her life. The desire to uncover the incredible truth about who killed her mother - and why - keeps her holding on in this fast-paced, nail-biting thriller.
