Mother Russia

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A riveting thriller about crime and punishment in Soviet-era Moscow.

Like the Arkady Renko novels of Martin Cruz Smith, Robert Littell's masterful Mother Russia transports readers back in time and behind the Iron Curtain to experience the extremes of Soviet society. Robespierre Pravdin is a black marketeer who prowls Moscow's streets and alleys hustling wristwatches. Wishing only to survive in a city suffocated by paranoia and schizophrenia, Robespierre manages to make a tidy profit and stay under the state's radar-until, one day, he meets the woman called "Mother Russia" and becomes ensnared in the Byzantine and profoundly dangerous game of politics. This is another darkly engrossing pageturner from the bestselling author of The Sisters and The Defection of A. J. Lewinter.

About the Author

Robert Littell's novels include the New York Times bestseller The Company, The Once and Future Spy, The Amateur, The Debriefing, and An Agent in Place. A former journalist for Newsweek, Littell is an American who makes his home in France.
