Elena is a delicious villainess, and the compelling dynamic between plutocrat and protégée makes this an addictive read
A pacy read
Part thriller, part romance, part social commentary, this is a wildly entertaining novel
Fast-paced and clever, with a pleasing blend of political intrigue and romantic suspense as well as a whodunnit, this is perfect entertainment for a winter's evening
A real page-turner
A sharply observed take on the Faustian pact - and contemporary London
A fantastically compelling novel about an ordinary person who is propelled into the seductive world of Russian oligarchs, where nothing and nobody is who they appear to be. Tense, twisty and highly topical, Its skewering of the obscenely rich makes for a sophisticated treat by a dazzling new star of Cold War fiction.
Russian money of questionable provenance is at the heart of Palmer's novel, with a terrorist strike in London transforming the life of her struggling heroine Ruth. Strong on the topical issue of "Londongrad"
[A] sharply drawn and very timely thriller
