Free Fridays

Categories: Free Fridays


“Dryden follows up his superb debut, Red to Black (2009), with a riveting sequel... Red to Black reinvigorated the classic Cold War espionage genre. Moscow Sting, with its clever, devious, conflicted characters, its tension and verisimilitude, and its complex but fully plausible plot, is every bit as good.”

- Booklist


This follow-up to Dryden’s critically-acclaimed Red to Black focuses on former KGB Colonel Anna Resnikov, who abandoned her position to marry a British MI6 agent. When her husband is assassinated, Anna quickly learns that while the Cold War may be over, the ‘new’ Russia still has a brutal way of sending a warning to those who step out of line.


With her brash act of defiance, Anna now faces a wide swath of international enemies—from Putin’s forces, to the CIA, to an American private security firm. All are convinced that her husband passed along secret valuable information before his death.  Now Anna must call on her KGB training and a keen sense of self-preservation to protect herself and her son—leading to a thrilling globe-trotting adventure.


The thrills continue in Dryden's next book, The Blind Spy, available for pre-order now.

Thanks for Free Fridays B&N and Spec!  One question though, why is one of Spec's recommendations 

My Kindle Fire by Jim Chesire?  It's a guide on how to use the Kindle Fire.  Just wondering.
