The new novel, “The Feast of Wolves” (published by iUniverse) by Ben E. Tosho comments on the corruption in many societies – particularly developing nations – which deprives citizens of the benefits of their common wealth.
Raised in a poor, developing nation, Anthony Aja-Daniels nurses hopes of a noble future. He has high ideals of morality and honor, but in the corrupt West African nation he lives in, there is little hope for an honest, young man, starting out on his own. Though he still tries to make a way for himself, free of the corruption that surrounds him, Anthony fails.
Realizing the futility of his noble approach, Anthony learns that fortune can be found through crime or by affiliation with people in power. In a ruthless, calculated manner, Anthony achieves his every dream, but nothing built on burnt bridges can last forever. As he reaches the pinnacle of success, his past transgressions catch up with him, and his fall is long and hard.
“This book depicts the reality of many societies in the third world, it is not make believe,” Tosho says. “Crime and corruption destroy societies.”
