I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have read the full trilogy in the last 2 weeks. While the common characters created continuity, each book had its own plot and kept me reading, turning page after page, long after I should have gone to sleep each night. I'm going to read more of this author because I like his writing style.

I loved Child 44, liked The Secret Speech but did not care for this one. I found it too long and a bit boring.

Riveting read. This novel is part of a trilogy. It was great to see what happened to the Soviet detective and his family. So unlike other thriller stories.

Smith?s final volume in the trilogy about KGB agent Leo Demidov spans the Cold War era from 1963 to 1981. Leo?s life takes him from Russia to Afghanistan to New York and back to Russia. A tragedy occurs when his wife and daughters visit the US. The aftermath leaves him adrift. He spends years as an advisor in Afghanistan smoking opium to dull his emotional pain. Ultimately he travels to New York bringing with him a young Afghani agent in training and an 8-year-old survivor of a Soviet bombing. He must try to find answers to questions that have plagued him. The whole three book story is tragic but satisfying. Leo, first as an idealistic agent, then a struggling husband and father trying to protect his family, then back to working for the Soviets in Afghanistan and finally as a defector learns that the greatest, most noble motivator a human can have is love. In the end, the people you love are all that really matter.

This a a roman a clef which doesn't come off. It is poorly written and boring.

I hadn't enjoyed the first in this trilogy, the second I thought was quite good but this one was very good. You do need to read all three though.
