Gorky Park for the Putin era, Red to Black 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.”

As the story unfolds in the dimly lit worlds of the Russian and British secret services, a truly frightening portrait of the new, aggressive Russian state emerges—a Russia dominated by the KGB’s successors: powerful, modern, technocratic, and free from political control.

Welcome to the New Russia.

    " This is the prequel to Boompa's most recent recommendation. // well, I hope the sequel is better written. Interesting premise, but all exposition. Hard to do a thriller totally in flashbacks. "

    " A nice change for the spy novel. Written from the Russian KGB agent's point of view, and with a focus on Putin's government. A lot of Cold War history, woven into the plot very successfully. Took a hundred pages or so to get going, but well worth it. "

    " Torn between a 2 and a 3 rating. Interesting Russian/Soviet history. Storyline was adequate. "

    " Can spies really fall in love and quit the spy business? I'm sure it's like quitting organized crime but the flip side of the coin. It was interesting having the history of the cold war interspersed with the plot and how a professional job can turn personal. "
