Guy Collins, a British hack, is hunting for an election story in Lagos. A decision to check out a local bar in Victoria Island ends up badly - a mutilated female body is discarded close by and Collins is picked up as a suspect. In the murk of a hot, groaning and bloody police station cell, Collins fears the worst. But then Amaka, a sassy guardian angel of Lagos working girls, talks the police station chief around. She assumes Collins is a BBC journo who can broadcast the city's witchcraft and body parts trade that she's on a one-woman mission to stop.With Easy Motion Tourist's astonishing cast, Tarantino has landed in Lagos. This page turning debut crime novel pulses with the rhythm of Nigeria's mega-city, reeks of its open drains and sparkles like the champagne quaffed in its upmarket districts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[Easy Motion Tourist] is a great novel about a horrifying place that was all new to me, and will surely resonate as all new to most British readers. It's shocking, it's funny, it's a vaulting jackal of a book that rips out your throat... and your heart. This book roils, rages, and roars. Leye Adenle has my vote for crown prince of crime writers in the UK." - James Ellroy
