If you like Russian spy novels, you'll love this! A suspenseful thriller set in modern-day Russia, the book centers around the existence of an oft-rumored but never found journal kept by former Russian leader Joseph Stalin. Scholar "Fluke" Kelso, a Sovietologist in Russia for an academic conference, gets drawn into a twisted plot when he meets someone who believes he can tell Kelso where this legendary journal is hidden. A sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat ride, with many surprises, I enjoyed this book very much and highly recommend it.

Harris's powerful new thriller . . . makes clever imaginative use of actual historical detail . . . will keep you on edge. NY Times. It would be the find of a lifetime, a personal notebook that once belonged to Josef Stalin. More than one life is at stake in the murderous race for the truth. . . . in the vast forests of northern Russia, the final, shocking secret of Josef Stalin waits to be discovered.

Well-researched story of last days of Stalin and his longterm impact on Russia. Good combination of Russian history (and historians)and contemporary Russian society.

Harris has written a very good suspense novel about crime in modern Russia which revisits the Stalinist era and all its horror. Stalin makes bin Laden look like a school boy. Leave it to the Cold War scholars to revisit this past in an exciting cop story. This is a good read.
