When Finn, a former British spy, is poisoned by a Russian assassin, his ex-boss Adrian, chief of MI6, wants vengeance. He also wants answers-information that only Finn's widow, Anna, knows. But the former KGB colonel who betrayed her country for love vanished with their child shortly after Finn's death. Adrian isn't the only one eager to find Anna. Finn accessed intelligence so sensitive that the KGB are willing to kill again to protect it-a chase that has piqued the interest of the major intelligence agencies, be they government-sponsored or private, around the world. Though Medvedev has assumed the presidency, everyone knows that Putin continues to pull all the strings. Just what is Russia concealing beneath its immense new oil wealth and veil of political cordiality? Anna holds the key to unlocking the secrets of her motherland. Taken to America for protection and information, the former Russian agent faces her greatest test: to ensure her freedom and protect her child, she must uncover the full truth before anyone else-even as friend and foe both set her in their sights. Moving from Paris to New York, the Kremlin to the American Southwest, Moscow Sting is an absorbing and timely tale of intrigue, betrayal, fatal lies, and complex truths, told with the authentic detail and chilling insight of an experienced insider.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Papajack | 2/15/2014

    " Slow moving, but picks up speed as the characters fill out. A good look at the attitudes of the ruling party in Russia. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 2/8/2014

    " I got off to a slow start with this first book I've read by Dryden, but the plot caught my interest about half way through; and I had no trouble finishing the book. It presents an interesting insight into the espionage/counter-espionage workings of two major powers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lue | 1/21/2014

    " I can't say this was one of my top 10 reads but not altogether a waste of time. It is the typical say novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 TiaJoJo | 1/20/2014

    " Really good. It helps to read the prequel and the sequel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 1/12/2014

    " Not entirely sure how the plot resolved itself. Felt like all the different threads were ended but never tied together "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen | 1/9/2014

    " I thought I would never finish this book. It was a good story line but following the twists and turns was difficult. The grammatical errors made it difficult to read as well. Would not recommend the book. Good thing it was a free download. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Albert | 12/28/2013

    " Enjoyable "brain Candy" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nev Thomas | 12/24/2013

    " Three and a half stars.Good spy yarn but a little slow for my liking "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Laduke | 12/9/2013

    " Good book. Not as much action I was expecting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hulananni | 12/7/2013

    " Not my usual genre for reading but I enjoyed the 'espionage' scenes in this book. Pleasant, diverting. Something fun to read on rainy day. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marissa Frey | 11/15/2013

    " It should be a movie. The characters did not have much depth and the plot was pretty simple with the intent for twists, but I just didn't fall for them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michele | 10/16/2013

    " I can't say I really enjoyed this one much and won't be reading any others in the series. It seemed to be overly complicated just because it could be and not to serve some greater good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy Canuck | 10/14/2013

    " I really wish I knew this was not the first in the series before I read this as I would have liked to have gotten to know Finn, sounds like a good character. The book was ok as far as Russian spy novels go but nothing special. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 9/27/2013

    " The Sequel to "Red to Black." Not as much first person narrative, more subtle, and the continued story of Anna Resnikova. Both of these are excellent and feature issues of current Russia along with the story told. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mn | 8/20/2013

    " very good Recommend this book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 7/13/2013

    " Lots of twists and turns, like a old fashioned spy novel. Characters are multi dimensional, and driven by murky motives. The end leaves you wanting another installment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jared Prebish | 6/30/2013

    " I'm not a huge espionage fan, but this novel may swing me in that direction. Moscow Sting is a solid follow up and I look forward to more in this series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bobbie57 | 6/20/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 5/17/2013

    " I enjoyed this book almost all the way through. The characters are well drawn and vivid. The bottom fell out of the plot at the very end. I just expected...more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vera VB | 5/23/2012

    " Finally another good spy book like in the times of the Cold War. I like them, it's a special kind of action/thriller writing. Not just a murder book, but it has a real plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Old_airman | 7/22/2011

    " Loved the first 3/4 of the novel. Fast paced and terrifying. The ending tied too many lose ends up too quickly. One of the major story lines at the beginning lead to a so what conclusion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dennis Willingham | 7/21/2011

    " Pretty good spy page turner. Author is former British security service employee, and the detail and situations read like it. Decently written with a few rough spots and the most abrupt ending I think I've ever read. Good for an airplane book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 6/17/2011

    " makes me want to read his other books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eileen | 3/22/2011

    " Enjoyable, started off very fast paced and was building to be a very good spy novel. However, it slowed towards the middle and the plot seemed to fizzle, ending seemed premature with lots of lose ends. I would recomend as an easy quick read, plus you can download a free version from b&n. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 3/9/2011

    " If you are interested in a spy novel, a double cross novel, and that ilk, then this is good. I found it to be a good, relaxing read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 2/28/2011

    " A little too long and complicated although I will say MOST ends were tied up at the end. I have never read any of this author's book before and I'm not sure I would search out anymore. It was reasonably satisfying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 11/13/2010

    " I got off to a slow start with this first book I've read by Dryden, but the plot caught my interest about half way through; and I had no trouble finishing the book. It presents an interesting insight into the espionage/counter-espionage workings of two major powers. "
