Red To Black

A spy thriller, a love story and a chilling look at a resurgent superpower…

At the dawn of the new millennium, Finn, an MI6 spy, and Anna, a colonel of the KGB, have been sent to spy on each other. Instead they find a love that becomes to only truth they can trust. A source deep within the Kremlin tells Finn of a plan, hatched in the depths of the Cold War, to dismantle the edifice of the communist state and to bring about the rise of a new imperium within Russia: a plan to control the whole of Europe. Finn’s masters in London are blinded by the new wealth pouring out of Russia and he must leave the Service and work in secrecy to uncover the deadly threat it poses to the freedom of every one of us.

Reviews

...could not be better timed... [Dryden] is grimly authoritative on the power plays of Putin and the new Russia
<i>Daily Express<i />
Alex Dryden's brilliant and unforgettable novel has told me more about the making of modern Russia than I could learn from all books of journalism and contemporary history combined. That it has done so in the form of a compulsively readable spy story, love story and moral fable is nothing short of miraculous
Stephen Fry
... terrifying, quite frankly ... chillingly unputdownable - everything you didn't want to know about Putin but were afraid to ask
Emma Thompson
Alex Dryden is the real thing. If he got any realer, he would step out of the pages and physically punch you, with both elegance and regret
Hugh Laurie
