Tom Rob Smith’s blockbuster thriller Child 44 is just $0.99 for a limited time. When Smith broke onto the scene with this stunning debut, fans of classic thrillers were overjoyed. Child 44 tackles big themes—devotion to country , political oppression—and brings the dark days of the early Cold War back to life.


When a disgraced government agent Leo Demidov faces an unexpected demotion, he is determined to prove his loyalty and restore his good name. At the same time, a serial killer is on the loose, but the arrogant authorities refuse to acknowledge the possibility of this tragedy unfolding in their "ideal" society. Demidov sets out to find the killer and save countless innocent lives, and along the way uncovers truths that are far more dangerous than one rogue murderer. Named one of National Public Radio’s top 100 thrillers of all time, Child 44 is a must-read at an unbeatable price.

This is a great book--not my typical genre, but both my husband read it and enjoyed the story.

The description reminds me of Martin Cruz Smith.  I'm hoping it's as good.

It's been on my wish list for a while.  The price is right so I just downloaded.  Looks good.

I especially enjoyed the description (apparently well researched) of the insanity and fear of living in Stalin's Russia under Communist rule. This paranoia extended to all facets of Russian life of that era and the author does a very good of invoking that period. The paranoia and logic of life in that time is always palpable like an evil character. There are, however, some extemely coincidental plot lines that are a hard to swallow. But if you can get over that hump the book is sobering, but enjoyable.
