“The Soviet knight is dying inside his armor.”

“Glasnost” is on everyone’s lips, but the rules of the game haven’t changed for either side. When a beautiful Russian woman foists off a manuscript on an unwitting bystander at the Moscow Book Fair, it’s a miracle that she flies under the Soviets’ radar. Or does she? The woman’s source (codename: Bluebird) will trust only Barley Blair, a whiskey-soaked gentleman publisher with a poet’s heart. Coerced by British and American Intelligence, Blair journeys to Moscow to determine whether Bluebird’s manuscript contains the truth … or the darkest of fictions.

At once poignant and suspenseful, John le Carré’s The Russia House is a captivating saga of lives caught in the crosshairs of history.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Thrilling in every imaginable way.”


  • “A plot of commanding suspense…The Russia House is both afire and thought-provoking, a thriller that demands a second reading.”


  • “The master of the spy novel has discovered perestroika, and the genre may never be the same again.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Michael Jayston must provide more than a proper British voice in his narration. With a couple of Soviets, a few Americans, and a cadre of British agents, he has multiple challenges. He meets all of them deftly, adapting well as Barley learns the spy game. Jayston’s delivery enhances le Carré’s suspenseful writing.”


  • “Bears all the marks of a master.”
