SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE
In a country ruled by fear, no one is innocent.
Stalin's Soviet Union is an official paradise, where citizens live free from crime and fear only one thing: the all-powerful state. Defending this system is idealistic security officer Leo Demidov, a war hero who believes in the iron fist of the law. But when a murderer starts to kill at will and Leo dares to investigate, the State's obedient servant finds himself demoted and exiled. Now, with only his wife at his side, Leo must fight to uncover shocking truths about a killer-and a country where "crime" doesn't exist.

Mesmerizing. Smith takes the reader to a place and time - post-stalinist Russia - and makes it seem so vivid that I felt I had lived there.
I have the actual book in hardcover. This is a great book. Amazing. Nothing else can describe this glorious thriller.
Forget your typical thriller. This book takes you into postWWII Russia where everything is good---unless you disagree with the state. Great book! Very thought-provoking. Is Utopia possible?
