Reviews

Even better than Child 44 * Telegraph * Given that the definitive thriller in 1980's Moscow already exists (Martin Cruz Smith's Gorky Park), Jack Grimwood's Moskva looks like a crazy gamble. But it's one that comes off . . . * Sunday Times * Tom Fox is well drawn, the action scenes are filled with energy and tension, but the real hero of Moskva is Russia itself, bleak, corrupt, falling apart, but with an incurable humanity -- Tom Callaghan A compulsive and supremely intelligent thriller from a master stylist -- Michael Marshall A first-rate thriller - Moskva grips from the very first page. Heartily recommended -- William Ryan Hard to know what to praise first here: the operatic sweep of this mesmerising novel; the surefooted orchestration of tension; or the vividly realised sense of time and place; all of these factors mark Jack Grimwood's Moskva out as something special in the arena of international thrillers -- Barry Forshaw * Financial Times * Like the city herself, Jack Grimwood's Moskva is richly layered, stylish, beautifully constructed, and full of passion beneath the chills. Part political thriller, part historical novel, part a story of personal redemptions, Moskva cements Jack Grimwood as a powerful new voice in thriller writing. Not to be missed. -- Sarah Pinborough Memorable characters, powerful recreations of history and an unrelenting pace that will keep you breathless. A striking debut in the genre. -- Maxim Jakubowski A sublime writer . . . I felt glimmers of Le Carre shining through the prose. -- CrimeSquad
