Overview

One hundred kilometers north of Arkhangelsk, a Russian sea captain ferries a silent operative to a secluded lighthouse...

In Moscow, a hapless American answers a errant phone call and is ordered to make a mob hit...

In a remote village in the Caucasus, a strange sickness is killing off locals...

Blocks from the Kremlin, a disaffected spy chief is plotting a war-fueled power grab...

Unwittingly sucked into a criminal vortex of murder, kidnapping and terrorism, Andrew Dixon is a burned-out American expat in Moscow who makes a series of really bad choices. Choices that are going to get him and his friends killed. His only hope for survival is finding qualities in himself he didn't know existed.

Fat chance.

From the shores of the White Sea to Moscow and the Northern Caucasus, Russian Rules is a high-speed thriller based on actual events, terrifying possibilities, and some really stupid decisions.

Meet the Author

Paul E. Richardson has been involved with Russia for 30 years. He was bitten by the Russian bug in 1981, shortly after swapping his tattered down jacket for a black marketeer's fur hat. In 1989 and 1990, after several years of intensive language study and graduate work in Russian area studies, he finagled a position as head of one of the first Soviet-Western joint ventures in Moscow. Despite his best efforts, however, he had absolutely no part in bringing about the end of the Soviet Union. In his day job, Richardson is publisher of Russian Life, a bimonthly magazine on Russian culture, history, travel and life.

Richardson's novel, Russian Rules (a thriller of sorts about loose nukes, mistaken identity and iPhones) was released in 2011, and his tribute to the running life, Running is Flying, will be published by Rodale in 2012. He also authored the decidedly more mundane Russia Business Survival Guide (7 editions), has edited several books on Russian business, culture and history, and has written countless articles on Russian history and culture. He is a graduate of Central College (IA) and Indiana University, Bloomington (IN), is married and lives in Vermont.
