Amnesty by Aravind Adiga is “a day in the life” novel that kept me sitting in my car many times after arriving at my destination, listening and waiting for the other shoe to drop, wondering if Danny would be caught - by immigration officials or by the murderer. I kept hoping he would do the “right thing”--and somehow escape the consequences he would face for doing so. From around 8:30 a.m. to 7:03 p.m. we are privy to Danny’s thoughts and fears, and learn his life story, from Sri Lanka to Dubai and finally Australia. A masterfully suspenseful and extremely timely tale of hope and hopelessness, Amnesty will keep you listening late into the night. Recommended by Nancy
