One Response to Double Debut: Both Starred!

  1. The Anti-Librarian says:

    Kudos to Talia for sending me a copy of “The Holy Thief”. I expected a Martin Cruz Smith (Arkady Renko) knock-off but got a well-written mystery set in Stalinist Russia. In my prime I probably would have stayed up way late reading this one. The author really did his homework and has created a great character in Korolev.
