“The conclusion of the Child 44 trilogy is as fast-paced and exciting as the first two volumes. After his wife's senseless death while on a goodwill trip to the USA in 1965, Leo Demidov, former Russian secret police agent, has only one goal - to find and kill the perpetrator. The Soviet government has a different agenda, however, and Leo is forbidden to pursue the matter. Leo's dedication to investigating the truth of his wife's death never falters. A suspenseful Cold War espionage treat!”
— Susan Taylor, Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza, Albany, NY
Former secret police agent Leo Demidov is thrown into a foreign conflict and is forced to question and confront everything he ever thought he knew about his country, his family, and himself.
