ABOUT
THE BOOK

The story begins at its climax. Cynthia Sinclair, a famous British singer, arrives with her mother, Deborah, at the Riverside Resort on the bank of the River Benue and mysteries begin to be unravelled. While Cynthia familiarizes with Terna Weshima, a psychoanalyst, she realizes that things are not what they seem and answers to the mysteries in her life can only be found in the past and her memories. Ann Napdon, the manager of the resort, suddenly discovers that she was in a plot that was already at its climax and that the frequent visits from the wealthy Peter Shawon, meant more that she knew. The mastermind behind the riverside setting is the mystic Barry Atile who wants revenge. The past reveals memories of betrayals, murders, hate, love and passion. The present shows that memories are alive and at work.
