Something Happened Last Night…
Five years ago, a chance meeting with Femi Uzoechi changed Marilyn’s life. Except for the part she keeps under lock and key in her house of cards. The line between her past and the one she wanted was long drawn in the sand. But all that changed on the eve of her wedding.
When an urgent call drags Marilyn to work on her day off, a cryptic conversation with Femi leaves her with unanswered questions. ‘Something happened last night,’ he says.
Hours later, Femi is dead.
An accident? Suicide? Murder? The police see no foul play. Neither does Femi’s TV-famous widow. But Marilyn can’t shake off those haunting words. As she digs up the graves of Femi’s past in pursuit of the truth, the cracks in her own life begin to surface, threatening to send everything she’s built crumbling down. Every thread she unravels takes her a step closer to the scattered pieces of the girl she left behind, a crossroads she can no longer evade, and a killer with nothing to lose.₵100.00

49 Ways to Get Rid of The Other Woman Without Getting Caught is a book that deals with the major issue of infidelity in marriage. The book explores the subject through the lens of a wife, seeking to oust the other woman, an intruder, who is threatening her territory. In the pages, Amaka Chika-Mbonu presents a 49-day programme of warfare, both spiritual and temporal, for all couples, to wrestle with the evil of infidelity and adultery. She uses riveting stories—loosely based on true facts garnered over fifteen years as a marital counsellor, using the enshrined word of God—to teach practical lessons. It contains a chronicle of laws, petitions, and supplications. The tone is militant, violent and aggressive, and as in regular warfare, there will be casualties. It is essentially a manual for spiritual warfare.
