Description

"Alex Dryden is a writer who can please everyone from fans of old le Carre to students of current affairs."
--James Grippando, New York Times bestselling author of Afraid of the Dark

"Ex-KGB Colonel Anna Resnikov is a terrific heroine."
--Phillip Margolin, New York Times bestselling author of Supreme Justice

"Alex Dryden is the real thing. If he got any realer, he would step out of the pages and physically punch you, with both elegance and regret."
--Hugh Laurie, star of "House"

An author whom the Richmond Times Dispatch calls, "the next John le Carre," Alex Dryden returns with The Blind Spy--the third book in his critically acclaimed espionage fiction series featuring Anna Resnikov, formerly of the KGB in Moscow. One of the most intriguing female protagonists in contemporary fiction, Anna is back in the rifle sights of her former masters as she races to expose Russia's plot to destabilize the Ukraine and retake their former territory. A story almost literally ripped from the headlines, The Blind Spy is a gripping, smart adventure that crackles with authentic modern spycraft--an absolute must-read for fans of John le Carre, Alex Berenson, Martin Cruz Smith's Arkady Renko series, spy novel and geopolitical thriller devotees, and for any readers interested in what's really going on in the "new Russia."

Back cover copy

Superspy Anna Resnikov is back in Alex Dryden's latest, masterful international thriller--The Blind Spy

Russia has never accepted Ukraine's independence and now the Patrioti--Putin, his elder statesmen, and seasoned generals dedicated to rebuilding their fallen empire--are using the KGB's controversial elite and clandestine forces of Department S to destabilize the young democratic nation and bring it back under Russian control.

But Cougar, the powerful private intelligence company that overshadows even the CIA in its reach, learns of Russia's plans and strikes at the heart of its plot with its own lethal weapon--the gorgeous ex-KGB colonel Anna Resnikov. More than a gifted spy and expert killer, Anna lost the love of her life and the father of her child at the hands of her former countrymen. Her defection to Cougar has made her the most wanted woman in Russia, but she'll risk any danger to herself for the chance to destroy the evil that rules her homeland. And on the ground in Ukraine, she meets a formidable foe, a mysterious KGB spy whose aims are suspiciously unclear but whose power is unmistakably deadly.

New York Times bestselling author James Grippando raves, "Alex Dryden...can please everyone from fans of old le Carre to students of current affairs." The Blind Spy is another killer cocktail of page-turning suspense, high-octane action, and riveting intrigue that will hold you captive from beginning to end.
