Publisher's Summary

Obi Okonkwo is an idealistic young man who returns to Nigeria for a job in the civil service following an education in the UK. Managing to resist the bribes that are offered to him, he falls in love with an unsuitable girl and sinks into emotional and financial turmoil. The lure of easy money becomes harder to refuse, and Obi becomes caught in a trap he cannot escape.

Don't waste your time.

This book is so depressing I hated it. But it did offer some good insights or learning by making mistakes.
