Book Description

Feb. 1 1991

Moscow Club

Joseph Finder

It’s 1991. The Cold War is over. Charlie Stone is a brilliant analyst for the CIA who made a name for himself during the height of the Cold War. But today his expertise is needed yet again: A top-secret tape—one that foretells a coup d’état in the Kremlin—has been smuggled out of the the Soviet Union by one of a few remaining moles. Stone’s assessment of the transcript is two-fold: Not only is a very real, very violent power struggle underway but the plot may be linked to an old mystery involving the imprisonment of Stone’s own father. Could a McCarthy-era enemy be trying to send Stone a deadly modern message?

Soon Stone finds himself at the center of another conspiracy—framed for a grisly murder. Without proof of his innocence, Stone enters into a terrifying game of cat-and-mouse that leads him across the country, throughought Europe, and finally, to the Soviet Union. There, he will come face to face with a group of Kremlin insiders whose ruthless agenda threatens to disrupt the fragile balance of world power—and leave Stone with nowhere left to run. But before he can thwart a tragedy of epic proportions, he must put a stop to the elusive ways and means of THE MOSCOW CLUB.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The abrupt raising of the Iron Curtain, it would appear, has released a thousand intriguing ghosts from the past and given the spy novel a whole new lease on life. If Finder's fiction debut doesn't outdo Frederick Forsyth in grace of style, it surpasses both Forsyth and Ludlum in density of mystery and swirl of action. At the same time--not entirely surprisingly, coming from the author of Red Carpet, a study of the intricate connections between the Kremlin and U.S. big business--the plot is crammed with and even a little overwhelmed by details regarding the darker side of Soviet history and the workings of Soviet and U.S. intelligence. Assigned to examine a portentous tape sneaked out of Moscow by a mole, CIA Kremlinologist Charlie Stone finds himself in an espionage investigation of staggering complexity. As he hops among three continents, often the target of both the KGB and the CIA, Stone succeeds in vindicating his father, branded a traitor by McCarthy, while nosing out a plot by the head of the KGB to stage a violent coup during a Moscow summit that will end glasnost and set the world on its ear. The story contains as many chases, murders, conspiracies and uncloseted ghosts as any thriller maven could want, as well as a credible love interest; in all, it's a superbly exciting read. 75,000 first printing; $75,000 ad/promo.

From Library Journal

Did Lenin, on his deathbed, write a testament denouncing the newly founded Soviet Union as a police state? Did an ultra-secret American organization aid Beria in a failed coup following the death of Stalin? How do these two seemingly unrelated incidents connect with CIA Soviet analyst Charlie Stone's father's imprisonment during the McCarthy years? And what do all three have to do with what Stone believes is a developing Kremlin power struggle that could depose Gorbachev, repudiate glasnost, and rekindle the Cold War? These are the questions that propel this exciting first novel, a Ludlumesque tale of multiple conspiracies, deception, murder, and deadly pursuit. It lacks that convincing plausibility of the best of John le Carre or Len Deighton, but compensates for that with a driving what-happens-next readability.

Although the general theme and development was good, there was far too much irrelevant detail that made parts very tedious to read. It would have been better with less minutiae, particularly concerning characters and locations that had minor and fleeting roles in the story.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hey, a new story. In this category of books, it is getting a tough to find something new but this was. I think this has been one of the author's best books, if not the best. The story is very believable and tight. It had it all, a great story, good characters, wonderful action and a quick pace. This is just a good old exciting book. The author peppers the book with plot twists that keep the reader on his toes. This author writes in a way that is tight and slick that keep you interested through out. Great detail of the way the Russian government works (or doesn't). Sit back and enjoy this book.

It's a shame that such a book is out of print. When I read The Moscow Club, I was litteraly flipping the pages one after another. It keeps you alert all the time because you never know what is going to happen. An excellent way to kill time while you're on a boring trip.
