Description

A delicious post -cold war romp, "The Visiting Professor" is another classic page-tuner for the many fans that have come to recognize Robert Littell-thanks to "The Company" and its recent TNT miniseries-as a thriller writer on par with John le Carre and Alan Furst.
Lemuel Falk, "a Russian theoretical chaoticist on the lam from terrestrial chaos," has applied for permission to leave Russia every year for the past twenty-three years. Unexpectedly, his twenty-fourth request is approved and he accepts a chair as visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Interdisciplinary Chaos-Related Studies in upstate New York. As soon as he arrives, he is plunged into another kind of chaos-an academic catfight, an affair with a much-younger hairdresser, and a dangerous serial killer."

About Robert Littell

Robert Littell was born, raised, and educated in New York. A former "Newsweek" editor specializing in Soviet affairs, he left journalism in 1970 to write fiction full time. Connoisseurs of the spy novel have elevated Robert Littell to the genre's highest ranks, and Tom Clancy wrote that if Robert Littell didn t invent the spy novel, he should have. He is the author of fifteen novels, including the "New York Times" bestseller "The Company and Legends," the 2005 "L.A. Times" Book Award for Best Thriller/Mystery. He currently lives in France."
