The journalist cum novelist broke the news in a statement to TheCable Lifestyle on Saturday.

According to Daniels, the book will examine the Niger Delta crisis that crippled Nigeria’s oil industry from 2005 through the eyes of James Hunter, an investigative reporter.

The journalist added that the novel would be partly serialised in the online paper, The QuickRead, before its formal publication.

The book — told as fiction — begins with Hunter, the NewsHub newspaper’s award-winning investigative reporter, reluctantly undertaking an assignment to investigate pollution in the Niger Delta.

In the course of his investigation, he is, however, held captive in a death camp with Jones Coleman, an American environmentalist and the son of a fictional US senator.

Hunter’s detention marked the beginning of several other gruesome experiences he was subjected to as he strives to unravel forces behind the exploitation of oil in the Niger Delta region.

The author said the novel also provides an understanding of some of the changes, like the establishment of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) that have happened in the oil and gas industry over the years.

Daniels is one of Nigeria’s leading adventure novelists and has authored over 12 books.
