View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Only the Dead Speak Russian is brilliantly written by a veteran author whose captivating voice comes out at you from every pore of the story, as if issuing from a deeply involved presence. From Moscow, across Siberian tundra and at last, to Manhattan, the epic of Uri's and Valeria's flight from Revolutionary Russia and a parallel structure for possession of the mystic staff of Moses carry a magic that only Irving Greenfield could convey.

From the Publisher:

"Usually, the reader of a fictional work can hear and feel the presence of the author. Rarely does the voice of a narrator seem to originate at the scene of the action and entirely transcend the medium of the printed word. Irving Greenfield's ability to achieve this result is what so greatly attracted us to Only the Dead Speak Russian.

The story is a unique mixture of gripping adventure, historic scenes, mystical intervention and torrid romance. If we had wanted to publish a work that does several things to such perfection that each reinforces the other, Only the Dead Speak Russian would have been our choice. As it was, we chose it simply because we found it a thrilling story, beautifully told."
