Description

"Alex Dryden is a writer who can please everyone from fans of old LeCarre to students of current affairs. Moscow Sting is a thought-provoking and entertaining follow up to the terrific Red to Black."
--James Grippando, New York Times bestselling author of Afraid of the Dark

Booklist places author Alex Dryden in "the top rank of espionage novelists." His riveting Moscow Sting proves that the resounding critical acclaim awarded him for his debut, Red to Black, was no fluke. In this spellbinding sequel, former KGB colonel Anna Resnikov escapes to America where she must outwit CIA "friend" and KGB foe alike to survive. Alex Dryden has brought breathtaking new life to the spy novel in this blistering "ripped from the headlines" thriller that focuses on Russia's chilling reemergence as a hostile superpower.

Review quote

"Dryden follows up his superb debut, Red to Black (2009), with a riveting sequel... Red to Black reinvigorated the classic Cold War espionage genre. Moscow Sting, with its clever, devious, conflicted characters, its tension and verisimilitude, and its complex but fully plausible plot, is every bit as good."--Booklist (starred review)

Back cover copy

Former British spy Finn is dead, poisoned by a Russian assassin, and his ex-boss, the chief of MI6, wants vengeance . . . and answers. Finn's widow, Anna Resnikov, holds the key to the secrets to his death and to her motherland--but the onetime KGB colonel, who betrayed her country for love, vanished with their child shortly after Finn's murder.

The CIA also wants Anna, as does the powerful private American intelligence company Cougar. She's in the KGB's crosshairs as well--the only person who knows the true identity of the Kremlin insider and double agent known as Mikhail, whose knowledge of Russia's obscure intentions for its newfound oil wealth is coveted by the West. With friend and foe alike closing in, Anna must uncover a shocking truth before anyone else does. What's at stake is her freedom . . . and the life of her innocent child.
