Chasing Facades by Elizabeth Olushola Adeolu
Young and ambitious, Tayo Dabi is a rising star at Regent
Detective Agency where she is a trainee detective.
Driven by her passion to solve crimes – even as her
brother’s murderer walks free – Tayo immerses herself in
the job, delivering results that belie her newbie status.
But when Tayo is assigned a new, high-profile case, her
confidence is shaken. Lawrence Gbade, a popular, wealthy
contractor is murdered in his home, and as Tayo digs deeper
things become less certain. Was Gbade’s murder a robbery
gone wrong, or something much more sinister? Even as
self-doubt sets in, Tayo has to battle resentment from older,

and her growing attraction to Tony, the victim’s brother.
Romance meets crime thriller in this gripping story of
betrayal, rage and the facades we put up to hide our true
