Meet Seattle author Roxana Arama at a book signing for her debut novel, Extreme Vetting

About the book: An immigration lawyer fights to keep her client from being deported to the country where his family was murdered many years ago.

Then she finds out the killers are coming here—for both of them. 

"Extreme Vetting was unlike any thriller I have ever read; Arama kept me on my toes the entire novel, eager to know what the future holds for Emilio and his family. I appreciated how knowledgeable Arama was about the immigration process and her sensitivity to the struggles and major obstacles these peoples face. Truly a timely book, this novel can be an eye-opener to the violence and aggression so many immigrants are fleeing from."

— Theresa Kadair, Seattle Book Review

"Arama’s taut narrative brims with tension and indelible characters. ( . . . ) A remarkable cast sparks this incisive, riveting tale of intolerance."

— Kirkus Reviews
