Editorial Reviews

Review

“The opening pages of this fine spy thriller can jolt one, just for a delirious moment, into thinking that Ian Fleming is among us again.” ―Booklist

"Think Clear and Present Danger meets John Wick . . . Ben Coes brings the heat with The Russian, a no-rules, no-limits, punch-to-the-gut of a thriller that takes a blowtorch to the competition and will leave readers begging for a follow-up." ―The Real Book Spy

"Authentic tradecraft and top-notch action scenes propel the plot. Coes continues to more than hold his own in a crowded thriller field." ―Publishers Weekly

--This text refers to the hardcover edition.
