"The Russia page-turner that should be on everyone's list."--New York Post

"Perhaps there will be two or three readers out there who manage to finish the first chapter of this terrific debut and put it down for more than an hour. But they'll be back. And they'll devour it like the rest of us, skipping lunch, losing sleep, turning pages until the end, where we're all left waiting for more."--John Grisham

"Prediction: If you read chapter one, you'll read chapter two. If you read chapter two, you'll miss dinner, stay up far too late, and feel tired at work tomorrow. This is that kind of book. Superb."--Lee Child
