Asylum Denied is the gripping story of political refugee David Ngaruri Kenney's harrowing odyssey through the world of immigration processing in the United States. Kenney, while living in his native Kenya, led a boycott to protest his government's treatment of his fellow farmers. He was subsequently arrested and taken into the forest to be executed. This audiobook, told by Kenney and his lawyer Philip G. Schrag from Kenney's own perspective, tells of his near-murder, imprisonment, and torture in Kenya.

As a soon-to-be law student, this book was recommended to me as a “must-read” by a Wayne State Law faculty member. I am inspired by David’s story and shocked at the injustices he faced. The performance of this audio book is wonderful - one of the best I’ve heard since joining audible a year ago. Read this if you have any interest in law or the US asylum process.
