Reviews

Praise for Volk's Game: "Brent Ghelfi is the new Le Carre." --Brad Thor, #1 bestselling author of The Apostle"Like a bullet, Col. Alexei Volkovoy (Volk's Game) goes where he is pointed and doesn't stop until he hits something. Volk is less Arkady Renko than a Russian Jack Reacher, making Volk's Shadow as noir as a winter night in Saint Petersburg." --Library Journal (starred review)"In Ghelfi's mesmerizing second Russian thriller (after Volk's Game)... crisp characterization and strong visual prose keep the story moving to its harrowing climax in Chechnya. Those seeking a tour of the dark side of contemporary Russia will be more than satisfied." --Publishers Weekly"Moving at breakneck speed . . . Ghelfi handles the conventions of his genre like a pro. The violent derring-do is anchored in a portrait of contemporary Russia that is compelling and brutal on its own terms." --Newsday on Volk's Game"State of the art . . .
