Publisher's Summary

Haris Abadi is a man in search of a cause. An Arab American with a conflicted past, he is now in Turkey, attempting to cross into Syria and join the fight against Bashar al-Assad's regime. But he is robbed before he can make it, and is taken in by Amir, a charismatic Syrian refugee and former revolutionary, and Amir's wife, Daphne, a sophisticated beauty haunted by grief. As it becomes clear that Daphne is also desperate to return to Syria, Haris's choices become ever more wrenching: Whose side is he really on? Is he a true radical or simply an idealist? And will he be able to bring meaning to a life of increasing frustration and helplessness? Told with compassion and a deft hand, Dark at the Crossing is an exploration of loss, of second chances, and of why we choose to believe - a trenchantly observed novel of raw urgency and power.

Beautiful Story Well Told

Vikas Adam is an awesome narrator! I was really surprised by how well he handled all of the different characters accents. Usually when dudes try to do lady voices it's hard to get right, but Vikas doesn't overdo it and it lands well. More importantly, what a story! It definitely opened my eyes to a whole other world.

Not what I hoped for

After hearing Ackerman on NPR I wanted to read this book and with Vikas Adam narrating I had high expectations. I was rather disappointed.
It’s really more of a short story without a lot of development other than they are all broken by war but can’t stay away. Money seems to flow freely and disappear. The author started well enough to keep me going but I was glad it was short.
This was my second book narrated by Adam and he is a master of accents. Enjoy his style.
