Red to BlackUnknown - 2009
"Red to Black has more in common with the elegantly paced books of John le Carr#65533; than it does with Ian Fleming's James Bond novels. But readers who appreciate a healthy dose of real-world worries in their spy novels won't complain."
Gorky Park for the Putin era, Red To Black by Alex Dryden could have been ripped from recent headlines. At once a spy thriller, a love story, and a chilling look at a dangerously resurgent superpower, it is a masterful work that Stephen Fry calls, "Brilliant and unforgettable....Nothing short of miraculous." Welcome to the New Russia.
