Summary, etc.:
Step into the world's most insidious Internet scam that begins with a single email: "Dear Sir, I am the son of an exiled Nigerian diplomat, and I need your help...". When Laura's father gets caught up in one such swindle and pays with his life, she is forced to leave the comfort of North America to make a journey deep into the dangerous back streets and alleyways of the Lagos underworld to confront her father's killer. A story of love in a time of darkness, of one woman's search for redemption, and of a young boy who will triumph above it all.
