Review:

The New York Times has called Robert Littell "the American Le Carre," and his terrific new thriller shows why. A KGB contract killer nicknamed Parsifal, living in New Mexico as a dealer in rare guns, is suddenly called back into action by his old controller and ordered to remove a Russian defector and several leaders of the Apache tribe who run a gambling casino. Parsifal links up with a burned-out Gulf War vet named Finn to find out why--after years of inactivity--the KGB has turned itself back into an oddly motivated killing machine. The results are well up to Littell's high standards of intelligence and excitement.

About the Author:

Robert Littell was born, raised, and educated in New York. A former Newsweek editor specializing in Soviet affairs, he left journalism in 1970 to write fiction full time. Connoisseurs of the spy novel have elevated Robert Littell to the genre's highest ranks, and Tom Clancy wrote that “if Robert Littell didn’t invent the spy novel, he should have.” He is the author of fifteen novels, including the New York Times bestseller The Company and Legends, the 2005 L.A. Times Book Award for Best Thriller/Mystery. He currently lives in France.
