The City of Lovers, Liars, and Thieves is a story about 21st Century Monrovia and its residents that are embroiled in everything that is human--love, lies, sex, deceptions and survival, and a hope for a better future. This wonderful story which is filled with lovable characters, real and honest views of everyday people, steamy sexual encounter and romantic verses, is an embodiment of optimism for a city rising from the aches of war and viral epidemic. Set in modern day Monrovia, a small West African city on the Atlantic Ocean where dishonesty and individualism are antithesis to progress and hope for a better tomorrow for the city and its residents. Stanley Nimely, tells his story of struggle for love and survival in parallel to the city he so dearly loves which is struggling for everything a modern city needs. This story is so complex that it may require more than one reading to fully understand and digest the evolution of the people, the characters, the events and history of Monrovia, the shinning city on the hill.

The City of Lovers, Liars, and Thieves is a character driven novel that tells the story of Stanley, a forty-something year-old divorced writer who is at odd with the political establishment and the city's pretentious religious leaders that have accused him of writing explicitly flaming books that are corrupting the minds of the city's youth. Remaining true to himself, Stanley exposes everything that is going wrong with the city and its people. With a firm belief that the city's future will bury its ugly past, he exposes the lifestyles of those that are persecuting him in a fury of daily articles which tells everything that is done in the dark--corruption, sexual exploitation by both residents and foreigners, thievery, political backstabbing, and all the vices that give a good city a bad name. Stanley's experiences with some residents and politicians of the city have made him to believe that Monrovians are ungrateful, fickle, and wicked liars that should never be trusted. But in the thick of his struggles when he finally meets the perfect woman, everything changes. As the saying goes, "Women have a special way of complicating things and beguiling a man's mind".
