Reviews

"Kayode delivers another ensnaring, vividly realized, suspenseful, and witty tale of a reluctant yet gifted investigator who susses out the truth about people trapped within entrenched criminality and injustice."--Booklist
"GASLIGHT is a dizzying poetic crime novel. Femi Kayode is an unparalleled wordsmith."
--S. A. Cosby best selling author of ALL THE SINNERS BLEED
"Kayode joins the two investigations in surprising and satisfying ways, maintaining steady momentum and populating the story with well-drawn characters. His evocative portrait of contemporary Nigeria is icing on the cake. This series continues to captivate."--Publishers Weekly
"Kayode has written a twisty, cleverly plotted mystery where nothing--and no one--is what it seems. Philip is a warm, compassionate, and insightful narrator...details of Nigerian life are fascinating (Lagos's notorious traffic jams will comfort L.A. readers who think they have it bad)... Readers will eagerly await Kayode's next novel."--Kirkus Reviews
"Those looking for meaner streets to travel should pick up Femi Kayode's Gaslight, which brings back the investigator Philip Taiwo after the impressive 2021 debut, Lightseekers . . . . if this crime took place in the United States, the story would most likely follow the structure of a classic police procedural. But Kayode refracts those tropes through what actually ails Nigeria: rampant corruption, cavalier record-keeping and a sense that justice can never be achieved. Taiwo must struggle through murky depths to arrive at a truth that will please no one." --Sarah Weinman, New York Times Book Review
"Mystery fans who revel in an intricate tale that focuses on the "why" of criminal behavior will enjoy this slow burning and atmospheric thriller. . . with Gaslight, Kayode urges readers to consider the risks of imbuing an individual with prodigious power, and the ways in which groupthink can take hold of an otherwise decent person or system. That, plus an emotionally complex narrator and a cast of well-developed characters, makes Gaslight a provocative and memorable mystery."--Linda M. Castellitto, Bookpage
