Another page-turning story of intrigue and espionage by Ian Kharitonov. The Sokolov brothers return from The Russian Renaissance to avenge crimes committed against their family and loved ones. A deep dive into Russian history frames the setting for blackmail and corruption among the nation’s controllers. Caught in the crossfire between power brokers, the Sokolov brothers rely upon their wits, hand-to-hand combat skill, and their loyal rescue-trained companions to take on the bad guys. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys complex, fast-paced action thrillers.
The second in the Sokolov series, I found this not to have quite the richness of its predecessor, but still to be a top level read. Movement, action, a lightweight conspiracy - in effect a good presentation. I'm off to purchase number 3 in the series.
This is an interesting book about Russia. The story is well laid out and thoughtful. I was surprised at how much I learned about Russian history during the Bolshevik revolution and how it is still affecting modern Russia. The author has a very personal point of view on the subject and uses these books as a vehicle to highlight this view point. He does so within the highly entertaining and complex vehicle of his narrative. Great read, a little preachy when it comes to the evils of the Soviet Union.
