“Ex-KGB Colonel Anna Resnikov is a terrific heroine.”
—Phillip Margolin, New York Times bestselling author of Supreme Justice
“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, star of “House”
An author whom the Richmond Times Dispatch calls, “the next John le Carré,” Alex Dryden returns with The Blind Spy—the third book in his critically acclaimed espionage fiction series featuring Anna Resnikov, formerly of the KGB in Moscow. One of the most intriguing female protagonists in contemporary fiction, Anna is back in the rifle sights of her former masters as she races to expose Russia’s plot to destabilize the Ukraine and retake their former territory. A story almost literally ripped from the headlines, The Blind Spy is a gripping, smart adventure that crackles with authentic modern spycraft—an absolute must-read for fans of John le Carré, Alex Berenson, Martin Cruz Smith’s Arkady Renko series, spy novel and geopolitical thriller devotees, and for any readers interested in what’s really going on in the “new Russia.”
Booklist places author Alex Dryden in “the top rank of espionage novelists.” His riveting Moscow Sting proves that the resounding critical acclaim awarded him for his debut, Red to Black, was no fluke. In this spellbinding sequel, former KGB colonel Anna Resnikov escapes to America where she must outwit CIA “friend” and KGB foe alike to survive. Alex Dryden has brought breathtaking new life to the spy novel in this blistering “ripped from the headlines” thriller that focuses on Russia’s chilling reemergence as a hostile superpower.
