Start from Episode I Read Episode VIII (The previous episode) Chief Rowland Edozie wasn’t his usual self. He hadn’t slept soundly for days and it was starting to affect his mood and productivity.

The residential area was out of this world. And my colleagues were great. A car was practically waiting for me before I inked the pen on the acceptance letter.
