Anil’s Ghost: by Michael Ondaatje

Set in Sri Lanka during the bloody sectarian wars of the 1980’s and 90’s, the novels heroine is a former Sri Lankan trained in forensic anthropology, sent on a human rights fact finding mission to her homeland. With her partner, she discovers a corpse whose body reveals clues to political murder and intrigue that threatens not only her job, but her life.


  • Anil's Ghost I thought was an awesome book. I do not read many books start to finish but this one I did, not just because it was a major grade but because it was actually a good book. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys watching the show CSI becasue they are very similar in how they both involve solving murders. But in Anil's case there is a little twist because she is solving these political murders knowing her life is in danger of either the government or the guerilla group that does not like something she finds. And then... you will just have to read it to find out more.
