Selected by Indie Booksellers for the August 2010 Indie Notables
“Alex Dryden writes spy novels that put him on the same level as such illustrious predecessors as John Buchan and Eric Ambler. Like the classic writers, his work is taut, intelligent and frighteningly topical. The story of Russian defector Anna Resnikov and the machinations on all sides to use her and her knowledge is the perfect sequel to Red to Black and a perfect example of how excellent the genre can be.”
-- Bill Cusumano, Nicola's Books, Ann Arbor, MI


Description

But Anna, a former KGB colonel who betrayed her country for love, vanished with her child shortly after Finn's death.

Adrian isn't the only one eager to find Anna. Finn accessed intelligence so sensitive that the KGB killed to protect itand now Anna is in the KGB's crosshairs, as the only person who knows the true identity of the Kremlin insider, superspy, and double agent called Mikhail. The CIA and Cougar, a giant American private intelligence company, are also hunting her. With the Kremlin still in the grasp of all-powerful Vladimir Putin, Mikhail is the West's best hope for revealing Russia's obscure intentions for its newfound oil wealth.

Anna holds the key to the secrets of her motherland, and now the former Russian agent faces her greatest test. To secure her freedom and protect her child, she must uncover the full truth before anyone else doeseven as friend and foe set her in their sights.

Moving from Paris to New York, from 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.
