Product description

Review

A stunning debut thriller . . . ferocious, authentic and utterly terrifying . . . absolutely riveting. -- Geoffrey Wansell, DAILY MAIL

There are some authors who have gone out into the world to observe the good, the bad and the ugly. Owen Matthews is such a novelist. Black Sun is fascinating and has fearsome authenticity. -- FREDERICK FORSYTH

An outstanding first novel . . . Matthews writes superbly., SUNDAY TIMES 'Crime Book of the Month'

One of the best thrillers of recent years . . . a glorious book, a tour-de-force. It drips with authenticity from every page . . . a page-turning, thumping good read. -- DAVID YOUNG, bestselling author of Stasi Child

Fact and fiction combine to keep the pages turning in this impressive debut thriller. -- Antonia Senior, THE TIMES 'Best Historical Fiction of the Year'

Book Description

Inspired by history, this labyrinthine, compelling, tense and chillingly-authentic thriller brings Soviet-era Russia and the paranoia of the Cold War to brilliant life - a thriller to rank alongside Martin Cruz-Smith's Gorky Park and Robert Harris' Archangel.
