Using nuanced intonations and a slow and steady style of narration, narrator Peter Ganim's presentation is impeccable." — AudioFile Magazine

From the critically acclaimed author of The Unquiet Dead comes a devastatingly powerful new thriller audiobook that will stay with listeners long after the final track. A Dangerous Crossing by Ausma Zehanat Khan is haunting, disturbing, and thoroughly captivating.

The arrival of Sehr Ghilzai—a former prosecutor who now handles refugee claims for Audrey’s NGO—further complicates the matter for Esa, as his feelings towards her remain unresolved.

Working against time, with Interpol at their heels, Esa and Rachel follow a trail that takes them from the beaches of Greece, to the Turkish–Syrian border, and across Europe, reaching even the corridors of power in the Netherlands. Had Audrey been on the edge of a dangerous discovery, hidden at the heart of this darkest of crises—one which ultimately put a target on her own back?

"Engaging from the first chapter, Khan's novel provides a startling introduction to the Syrian refugee crisis, with characters, dialogue, and tragedies that come alive in audio. Using nuanced intonations and a slow and steady style of narration, narrator Peter Ganim's presentation is impeccable. Whether reading a scene in an inhuman refugee camp or presenting conversations among officials searching for a lost emigré, Ganim never falters." -AudioFile
