Ranjit Singh

Ranjit Singh was once a Captain in an elite unit of the Indian Army, but now he is a poor immigrant in America. As he makes his way in the New World, Ranjit takes on different jobs–first as a caretaker on Martha’s Vineyard, then as a taxi driver in New York City–that lead him into life-threatening trouble. A.X. Ahmad’s THE CARETAKER and THE LAST TAXI RIDE show us the underbelly of America from the point of view of an immigrant protagonist who will stop at nothing to find the truth.
