The Last King of Scotland

By Giles Foden
Narrated by Mirron Willis / 13 hours 54 minutes

Shortly after his arrival in Uganda, Scottish doctor Nicholas Garrigan is called to the scene of a bizarre accident: Idi Amin, careening down a dirt road in his Maserati, has hit a cow. When Garrigan tends to Amin, the dictator, obsessed with all things Scottish, appoints him as his personal physician. So begins a fateful dalliance with the African leader whose Emperor Jones-style autocracy would transform into a reign of terror. In The Last King of Scotland, Foden's Amin is as ridiculous as he is abhorrent: a self-proclaimed cannibal who, at the end of his eight years in power, would be responsible for 300,000 deaths. As Garrigan awakens to his patient's barbarism-and his own complicity in it-we enter a venturesome meditation on conscience, charisma, and the slow corruption of the human heart.
