Chosen as a Waterstones Thriller of the Month'Lightseekers is the type of detective crime thriller that should be on everyone’s shelves' Dorothy Koomson, author of My Other Husband 'A fast-paced thriller that offers insight into the ever present tensions in a poverty stricken community. An action-packed and spirited debut' Oyinkan Braithwaite, author of My Sister, the Serial KillerWinner of the 2019 UEA Crime Writing Prize, Lightseekers is the start of a major new crime series introducing investigative psychologist Dr Philip Taiwo.

When three young students are brutally murdered in a Nigerian university town, their killings - and their killers - are caught on social media. The world knows who murdered them; what no one knows is why.

As the legal trial begins, investigative psychologist Philip Taiwo is contacted by the father of one of the boys, desperate for some answers to his son's murder. But Philip is an expert in crowd behaviour and violence, not a detective, and after travelling to the sleepy town that bore witness to the horror, he soon feels dramatically out of his depth.

Will he finally be able to uncover the truth of what happened to the Okriki Three?-----------------------**Philip Taiwo returns in Gaslight - AVAILABLE TO BUY NOW**
