An amazingly assured and exciting debut thriller set in Soviet Russia in l953. Child 44 is a harrowing portrayal of the terror inflicted upon people by their own government, the disturbing truth of what it means to survive beneath a dictatorship, what happens when one man decides to go against everything he believed in.
Not since Gorky Park has a thriller captured so brilliantly the claustrophobia of life in Soviet Russia.
