The List List #210

This week’s List List is sponsored by Underground Airlines by Ben H. Winters.

In a present-day America where slavery still exists, a gifted young man called Victor has struck a bargain with law enforcement, working as a bounty hunter for the U.S. Marshals Service. On the trail of a runaway known as Jackdaw, Victor arrives in Indianapolis knowing that something isn’t right—with his case file, with his work, and with the country itself. But nothing will prepare him for the unspeakable truth. Read UNDERGROUND AIRLINES, a ground-breaking novel, a wickedly imaginative thriller, and a story of an America that is more like our own than we may want to believe.
