Author Longrin Wetten tells a captivating tale of unwavering ambition in the face of overwhelming odds in his new novel “Lie to Me, Dan” (published by AuthorHouse).

Set in Nigeria’s Niger Delta region, “Lie to Me, Dan” tells a fascinating story of passion and ambition at the fictional Saro Wiwa University and the various challenges facing an average Nigerian undergraduate, Marylyn. At 17-years-old, she’s just coming of age and is confronted with a defining life choice – whether or not to be with a man who doesn’t fit into her plans for the future.

Wetten’s multifaceted tale focuses on Marylyn and her suitor, the enigmatic Daniel Kazeh. His unusual and relentless advances are similar to Marylyn’s own relentless pursuit of academic excellence, and his attention puts her on the defensive and tests her resolve in myriad ways.

“In Africa, particularly Nigeria, where most of the primary target audience resides, the book’s exposition of ambition in the midst of overwhelming odds will appeal to many young adults who go through similar situations in real life,” Wetten writes.
