"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

Russia has never accepted Ukraine's independence and now Putin has engaged the KGB's elite, clandestine Department S to destabilize the young democratic nation and bring it back under Russian control.

But Cougar, the private intelligence company that dwarfs even the CIA, strikes back at Russia with its deadliest weapon--the gorgeous ex-KGB colonel Anna Resnikov. Her former countrymen murdered the love of her life, the father of her child, and she'll risk everything to destroy the evil that rules her homeland. But on the ground in Ukraine, she meets a formidable foe, a mysterious KGB agent who aims are unclear but whose power is unmistakably lethal. A killer cocktail of action, suspense and intrigue, The Blind Spy will hold you captive from beginning to end.

"Anna Resnikov is the kind of spy a reader can learn to like. A lot.... Alex Dryden's thriller presents Anna's combat skills, her spy-smarts and a chess match involving the top spies of the United States and Russia."--Albuquerque Journal
