by Inua Ellams.
A dark tale about families and other animals.
Ragi is in trouble. His wife is due back any minute, and he has to piece together the events of the last month before she arrives. All he knows is that while he's been in charge, his gentle geek of a son has transformed into an aggressive scrapper, and his father has developed an unhealthy obsession with household pets. But the explanation turns out to be worse than he could ever have imagined.
