!!This book contains examples of:

* {{Badass}}: Ike, as well as the other agents of CLANS-Ops.
* BerserkButton: Try to hurt Ike's brother, Dr. Joseph Orji, and he will destroy you.
* {{Bulungi}}: Completely averted. Nigeria really exists, and it is described in great detail in the novel. [[CaptainObvious This might be because the author himself is from Nigeria.]]
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [[spoiler: Raven's death.]] He was shot, had his neck broken and was dismembered. Ike even mentions that this is the cruelest, most barbaric murder he has ever witnessed.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: The police in Lagos will arrest you if you are at a crime scene, even if you try to help a victim.
* OneManArmy: Ike is described as this several times.
* WretchedHive: Lagos comes across as this. The city is chaotic, full of armed robbers and beggars and the police is corrupt and will arrive at a crime scene hours after they have been called.
