“… a must-read….” The Times of India
“… this book is intelligent, well-written, incisive and, at times, spooky.” New Indian Express
“Kumar is able to combine painstaking research, taut pacing and thought-provoking analysis to produce an outstanding work of non-fiction.” Business Standard
“Evidence of Suspicion is a must-read, because it confronts the most complex problem of our times. And also because it reminds one of the writings of that great chronicler of war, Ryszard Kapuscinski.” Open Magazine
“… perceptive report.” Live Mint
“In his excellent new book, Amitava Kumar documents some startling cases…” Tehelka
“After you read Evidence of Suspicion, you will never look at the global war on terror in the same way again. You will, also, finally know how to look at the war on terror, especially as it is fought here. I’ve read many fine books on the subject but they are all from the West and they didn’t furnish me with enough information or perspective on how I could look at what was happening in India… Amitava Kumar is the only other writer, along with Pankaj Mishra and Pico Iyer, whom we have, that can transform reportage into a layered, powerful and imaginative work of literary non fiction… I can’t think of a more urgent, important and necessary book for us this year. You should rush to read it.” The Hindu
