Moscow Venture by A.K. Celer

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Moscow Venture by A.K. Celer is a story about John Baron finding out just what happened to his friend of many years who died under mysterious circumstances during an MRI. A fascinating look at Russia in the early 1990's, Celer has done a fantastic job of writing a fast paced spy thriller along the lines of Tom Clancy or Ian Fleming. The main character John, after being strong-armed, takes his best friend's place within the CIA and goes to the Soviet Union to uncover the mystery, knowing that it will only bring trouble and may even put his life in jeopardy. The action and suspense propel the story forward, immersing the reader, while the author also did his research about Cold War Russia which is very evident in the writing. With a well conceived story line that adheres to historical timelines, Celer has accurately represented the Cold War time frame, the disintegration of the Soviet Union, and the advance of international cellular technology. Highly recommend for a suspenseful and enlightening spy thriller.
