Overview

When Finn, a former British spy, is poisoned by a Russian assassin, his ex-boss Adrian, the chief of MI6, wants vengeance. He also wants answers—information that only Finn's widow knows. But Anna, a former KGB colonel who betrayed her country for love, vanished with her child shortly after Finn's death.

Adrian isn't the only one eager to find Anna. Finn accessed intelligence so sensitive that the KGB killed to protect it—and now Anna is in the KGB's crosshairs, as the only person who knows the true identity of the Kremlin insider, superspy, and double agent called Mikhail. The CIA and Cougar, a giant American private intelligence company, are also hunting her. With the Kremlin still in the grasp of all-powerful Vladimir Putin, Mikhail is the West's best hope for revealing Russia's obscure intentions for its newfound oil wealth.

Anna holds the key to the secrets of her motherland, and now the former Russian agent faces her greatest test. To secure her freedom and protect her child, she must uncover the full truth before anyone else does—even as friend and foe set her in their sights.

Moving from Paris to New York, from the Kremlin to the American Southwest, Moscow Sting is an absorbing and timely tale of intrigue, betrayal, fatal lies, and complex truths, told with the authentic detail and chilling insight of an experienced insider.

Moscow Sting is a fairly typical spy novel, but well-written and entertaining as expected for a good one. The characters are believable and the plot interesting and well-timed. I liked it enough to get the first in the series.

Well written, great research, topical for today's world politics, and suspenseful. I recommend Alex Dryden' book to others and plan to purchase Red to Black and The Blind Spy. p.s. I found myself thinking about getting back to the book when I was away from it. What could be better than that?

Good spy thriller, I just don't see why Anna doesn't debrief the Americans fully--it's not like she's going to be killed afterward. Maybe she's trying to protect Mikhail; I doubt this because he already was a source to the British.

book was okay, I thought the ending was a little anti-climatic for all the build up. i will say that it did grab my attention but was a slow read. if you get through the first half of the book then it will keep your interested.
