The Darkening Field

From Eileen Effrat

Author: William Ryan

Title: The Darkening Field

This is Ryan’s second Captain Alexi Korolev mystery. Sent from Moscow to Odessa, Korolev now investigates the murder of a dedicated party member filming a major Soviet movie. The woman is supposedly the lover of Yezhov, Stalin’s right-hand man.  Korolev finds himself once again treading lightly  in this extremely sensitive investigation.  As in his first novel, The Holy Thief,this is a good police procedural set in 1937 Moscow. If you enjoy Martin Cruz Smith’s Detective  Araday Renko  or Tom Rob Smith’s Detective Leo Demidov, Ryan’s Soviet based mystery series is for you.
