When proud matriarch Belinda lost her husband, she had been left to fend for her four children alone. She did her best to raise them to become caring, respectful and successful adults but, alas, the lure of crime—and the attraction of easy wealth—led to her two eldest sons to stray far from the path of righteousness.
They are now pitted against each other in a vicious battle for supremacy, both seeking to become ‘The Boss’, just like their criminal father. This unnatural fight between brothers threatens to tear the family apart and will bring multiple tragedies upon them all before the dust settles.
Both thoughtful and fast-paced, The Boss by Funmi Anu Bankole tells the story of a struggling family’s disintegration and the wider impact that making the wrong choices in life can have on individuals, their loved ones and society at large.
