Better Than You Might ExpectReviewed in the United States on 27 August 2015
I have a paperback copy of this book with a different cover and just purchased the Kindle version to read it again. I have read it 2-3 times before. I actually bought it at the largest bookstore in Moscow, Russia many years ago in the English language section and still have it here im Moscow with me. It is starting to fall apart now. The book tells about a period of Soiviet history just before the collapse of the system and is a fascinating look at how life and the system worked then. The author wrote the book here in Russia and was one of the people who started the Moscow Times which is an English language paper here. The characters and their motivations might be hard for people now to understand but it really was a different world then. I highly recommend this book to anyone even simply as a good suspense story. Too bad the writer didn't produce anything else that I can find.
