Description

The thrilling New York Times bestselling novel that inspired the major motion picture starring Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace

In a country ruled by fear, no one is innocent.


Stalin's Soviet Union is an official paradise, where citizens live free from crime and fear only one thing: the all-powerful state. Defending this system is idealistic security officer Leo Demidov, a war hero who believes in the iron fist of the law. But when a murderer starts to kill at will and Leo dares to investigate, the State's obedient servant finds himself demoted and exiled. Now, with only his wife at his side, Leo must fight to uncover shocking truths about a killer-and a country where "crime" doesn't exist.

    I loved this book. I found myself reading well into the night I couldn't put it down. Stalinist Russia is so intriguing and Leo is a character you both love and hate. I enjoyed this book so much I had to read "the Speech" also by Tom Rob Smith where Leo's story continues! The price is a steal too!
  • Surprised it's free would pay for this book.

    One of the best books that I have read in a while. You really feel the environment, the dynamics, and are pulled into the time and the characters. I feel for them. Gripping!
