    A review by Nalini Haynes. Foreign Soil is an audiobook of short stories written and read by poet and author Maxine Beneba Clarke.. Each story centers on an individual who is disadvantaged by normative privilege in some way. Most stories focus on people of color, some in their own countries (Jamaica and Sri Lanka, for example) and other people who’ve migrated to another country to suffer as. His mission spirals out of control when teammates become trapped in a foreign country, hunted by different factions, one willing to kill to keep its secret hidden. Working to save his people and locate the bacteria, Hardy discovers a deeper, more sinister plan.
