"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.

A veteran MI6 undercover operative stationed in Moscow, Finn has penetrated deep into the dangerous labyrinth that is Putin's Russia to discover its darkest secrets. The youngest female colonel in the KGB, Anna has been ordered to spy on Finn and discover the identity of his source.

At the dawn of a new millennium, these two adversaries are bound together by an unexpected love that becomes the only truth they can trust. Now they must risk everything to expose a chilling and ingenious plan devised during the Cold War years to control the European continent--a deadly plot in which friend and foe wear the same face.
