Description

"Red to Black has more in common with the elegantly paced books of John le Carre 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."
--Richmond Times-Dispatch

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.

Back cover copy

Finn is a veteran MI6 operative stationed in Moscow. In the guise of an amiable trade secretary, he has penetrated deep into the dangerous labyrinth that is Russia under Vladimir Putin to discover some of its darkest secrets, thanks to a high-level source deep within the Kremlin.

The youngest female colonel in the KGB, Anna is the ambitious daughter of one of the former Soviet Union's elite espionage families. Charged with helping to make Russia strong again under Putin, she is ordered to spy on Finn and discover the identity of his mole.

At the dawn of the new millennium, these adver-saries find themselves brought together by an unex-pected love that becomes the only truth they can trust. When Finn uncovers a shocking and ingenious plan--hatched in the depths of the Cold War--to control the European continent and shift the balance of world power, he and Anna are thrust into a deadly plot in which friend and foe wear the same face. With time running out, they will race across Europe and risk every-thing--career, reputation, and even their own lives--to expose the terrifying truth.
