Chief Israel Igbodiegwu, Idejimba, and few smart buccaneers formed an unholy union, Holy Circle and subdued everybody in the land. But, beneath the conquest lay a hidden truth held only by an old fearless man, Chief Gregory Isama, Eziokwu. A campaign to kill Chief Isama was launched. The Leprous Fingers is tale of MONEY, POWER and INTRIGUE. It graphically unravels the conduct of the rich against the poor, their voracious appetite and covetous ambition to remain ashore.
