Peter Oti, an ambitious, celebrated British Nigerian journalist, with a super size ego and a lustful eye, is on his way to America to begin a dream job as news anchor on CNN International.

Instead, promptly arrested on arrival and labelled "Ohio's worst Deadbeat Dad" by the press, Peter is suddenly forced into the terrifying world of an Ohio jail, in the grip of ruthless guards and cutthroat inmates.

Amid a cultural clash of British, Nigerian and American values, Peter runs the gauntlet of murderers, crack dealers, rapists and corrections officers, an opportunist ex lover with eyes set on a large payout and a local prosecutor bent on re-election.

As he battles to survive the predatory world created by America's criminal justice system, can the hapless British Nigerian beat them all and restore his name?

A British Nigerian "Deadbeat" in Cincinnati is a gripping read and a great, detailed insight into the horrors of US officialdom and the grim underbelly of the American Justice system.
