This is the latest novel by Tom Rob Smith. According to USA Today:
“The Secret Speech goes even further than last year's acclaimed Child 44 in capturing the mood of the Cold War-era Soviet Union.”
PW states: “Shifting from Moscow to Siberia and to a Hungary convulsed by revolution, this fast-paced novel is packed with too many incidents for Smith to dwell on any in great depth. Though its drama often lacks emotional resonance, this story paints a memorable portrait of post-Stalinist Russia at its dawn.”
Published by Grand Central, the book finishes at 416 pages. Read the review here.
