A page turner with interesting geographical setting and political approachReviewed in the United Kingdom on February 23, 2020
Much like the first of the series, this is an exciting, gripping tale. I really like the value placed on Russia and its people, while criticism of some of its state organs is free-flowing. The excess detail on both weaponry and martial art moves still irritates me, but less than was so with first book.
Rivetting book, really good thrillerReviewed in the United Kingdom on July 5, 2018

Five StarsReviewed in the United Kingdom on May 12, 2015
Would recommend with caveats, but read the first one first.Reviewed in the United States on April 10, 2017
The first novel, Russian Renaissance, was solid enough that I immediately read this next one. The ending felt a little too rushed, too neat, too convenient. Like the author found himself lost, with too much complexity on his hands, and couldn't figure out a better way to end the story than to blow up everything and walk away (hope this is does not need a spoiler alert). But I nonetheless enjoyed the twists and turns, the speed and pace of developments, and particularly the attempt to give Russia a more complex face than the west normally sees. I hope Kharitonov continues writing. Maybe not another Sokolov story, unless his characters develop further in their own complexity. Their personal histories (I'm saying "they" since there's the brother, Constantine, who plays in and out of the story line) would probably need to develop more than one dimension of motivations. But he writes well, has either excellent American English skills or a really good editor, but still honors some of the nuances of Russian literature (not that I'm an expert, but have read their great authors enough to see threads of continuity in contemporary Russian writers).

Great read, interesting history lesson, sort ofReviewed in the United States on November 1, 2016
This is an interesting book about Russia. The story is well laid out and thoughtful. I was surprised at how much I learned about Russian history during the Bolshevik revolution and how it is still affecting modern Russia. The author has a very personal point of view on the subject and uses these books as a vehicle to highlight this view point. He does so within the highly entertaining and complex vehicle of his narrative. Great read, a little preachy when it comes to the evils of the Soviet Union.
