Product Description

Details

Lead Fiction, Spring 2019: This thriller brilliantly evokes 1973 Moscow and a world of diplomacy and counter-espionage.

Escaping failure as an undergraduate and a daughter, not to mention bleak 1970s England, Martha marries Kit - who is gay. Having a wife could keep him safe in Moscow in his diplomatic post. As Martha tries to understand her new life and makes the wrong friends, she walks straight into an underground world of counter-espionage.

Out of her depth, Martha no longer knows who can be trusted.

Press Reviews

‘The Wolves of Leninsky Prospekt evokes the feel of communist Russia, it's greatness and greyness... An intriguing and thought provoking read.'

‘Armstrong writes in a fast flowing style which is easy to read and holds reader attention from beginning to end.'

‘Sarah Armstrong has delivered a mesmerising, evocative novel in which characterisation and narrative tension are in perfect balance.'

‘Armstrong evokes a Moscow that is magical and oppressive... A novel with a powerful sense of place, that summons up a world from our not so distant past.'

‘A terrific novel of loyalties and love, showing with humour and warmth how a place can get inside you and challenge everything you thought you knew about yourself, and your home.'

‘I was as captivated by the story as Martha was with Moscow, waiting for the snow that never quite arrived. A smart, acerbic, thought provoking read.'
