Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith

Child 44

I don’t usually read thrillers, but I have to say Child 44 is exceptional.  Perhaps it’s the historical fiction loving side of me, perhaps it’s my fascination with political systems, but Tom Rob Smith’s book is gripping, informative, and a heck of ride.

Leo Demidov is a security officer in the Stalinist era Soviet Union.  He has a great job and a beautiful wife, and everything seems perfect for him, until he discovers a series of related murders, and dares to put justice above politics.

There are so many twists and turns, this a novel that’s impossible to put down.  I could definitely see a movie coming out of this book.  Loved it!
