Shadow Pass (2011)
language
English
3.77 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I still like the main character/series, but this wasn't the greatest story. Seemed more anchored in the atmosphere of Stalinist Russia rather than the mystery and actual characters, if that makes sense. (It did remind me how lucky I am to live in a place where I can blurt out wha...
The Beast in the Red Forest (2014)
language
English
4.02 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I so enjoyed earlier entries in this series starring Inspector Pekkala, AKA the Eye of the Emerald, and their setting in Stalinist Russia. This one is just too gritty and violent, and set against a confusing series of events leading to WWII. The interwoven side story of an Amer...

review 1: A significant improvement on the previous books in the series.The story is more interesting and flows well, the characters are more rounded (and the historical figures actually act more like they should), the historical setting covers a much well less known aspect of Russian hist...

review 1: Καλό αστυνομικό. Τύπου Μπελ, καθόλου προχειρογραμμένο. Παράληλλα με την ιστορία του σήμερα (1929) ανατπύσσεται η ιστορία του παρελθόντος του Πέκαλα, ποιος ήταν, ποιες οι αντιλήψεις του, γιατί τον επέλεξε ο τσάρος για στενό συνεργάτη του, ποια η σχέση του με τον αδερφό του, ποια τ...
The Red Coffin (2011)
language
English

review 1: I enjoyed the historical parts of the book about the Tzar and Tzarina of Russia, Rasputin and later, Stalin, plus the descriptions of the Russian cities, food, and Siberia (sounds even worse than I'd thought). I liked the story line and Inspector Pekkala and his side-kick. My o...
La bara rossa (2011)
language
English
3.77 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: When I find a book that I can't put down or look forward to finishing it is worth 5 stars to me. This book kept me interested and involved in the story. The detective story was well written and I didn't ever feel the need to skip a few pages to get to the end as I have done in ot...

review 1: In 1939 Russia is developing a new tank. The design team is headed by a demanding / difficult / uncaring engineer who is murdered. One of the most senior investigators in the land becomes involved in the case and a plot to provoke the Germans.The first 300 pages of this book are ...
Siberian Red (2012)
language
English
3.85 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Another fine subject for a sweeping movie set partly in Siberia. Mr. Eastland keeps rolling these stories out with little snippets of flashbacks for clarity. We're finding some repetitive phrases, but that does not take away from the tale.Stalin kind of comes off as a comic opera...
L'occhio dello zar (2010)
language
English
3.73 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I continue to look forward to more of this series. I'm also glad, however, I began it with book 3(Archive 17). It feels as though Mr. Eastland hit his stride by then. There are anomalies about relationships and characters in this first book. Why would Pekkala, a man of impeccable...
Het oog van de rode tsaar (2010)
language
English
3.73 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: With so few actual, provable facts as to the circumstances of the execution of the Tsar, the author has used every source available to present a possible scenario (according to ONE of the many supposed live sitings of members of the tsar's household after the executions)of the an...
The Red Moth (2013)
language
English
4.1 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: As Hitler's forces smash into Soviet territory, annihilating the Red Army divisions in its path, a lone German scout plane is forced down. Contained within the briefcase of its passenger is the seemingly inconsequential painting of a hyalophoria cecropia, otherwise known as a red...
