Book Review: Missing Girl by Juliet Ekwealor

Okay, I have to be honest with you. This novel 'Missing Girl' by Juliet Ekwealor is mind-blowing. I don't think I've ever read a crime fiction such as this one. The author sure knows how to take the reader's hand and lead him/her into a gripping suspense-filled journey. I love everything about the book; the intriguing characters, plot twists, dialogue and atmospheric tone of the writer. Just when you think Anna, the missing girl will finally be found, another unexpected twist occurs. I sincerely wish every Nigerian Police Officer can perform their work with so much passion and commitment like Detective Daniel. I won't be surprised if it is adapted into a movie.


A teenage girl disappears, throwing her parents into a huge turmoil. Detective Daniel Ayokun sets out to find the young girl, despite all odds. What started as a less dramatic investigation turned into an eye-popping, unexpected twist as a Catholic Priest suddenly becomes the prime suspect.

Amidst pressures of an inter-tribal marriage with his journalist fiancée and a languid police force, Detective Daniel began to unravel the mysteries surrounding the missing girl.
