Underground Airlines by Ben E Winters

A future where racially motivated slavery is alive and kicking sounds like a nightmare right? Well, this book puts you right in the center of a world where this is happening and makes it feel real and current.

With a brilliant plot line and a firm grasp of American legislation, we’re taken on a Bladerunner-esque journey with a bounty hunter who has been given the task of bringing down a network of people who free the slaves. He thinks he is clear about what he has to do to win his own freedom but as he progresses deeper in to the network, he realises that nothing is black and white.

This was an excellent read, clever, sharp and thought provoking. Highly recommended.
