It is terribly true that the entire country for many years lived in constant fear of receiving “knocks at the door” most likely at night. It was an intrinsic aspect of life in Russia at that time.
Another surprisingly truthful description of Russian life was mentioned by Olga, who described the Novodevichy cemetery: “playwrights and poets, monsters and murderers: they all lie together here in Novodevichy.” She said that one can see “the striking contradiction of our history.”
I also would like to admit that author very aptly describes psychological process of Russian people after “perestroika”. Olga said: “To understand Russia today, you must understand the trauma of the nineties. Everything we had, everything we have been told, was swept away. We went from superpower to basket case overnight.” Russian people “believe in the …. Tsar. They associate democracy with chaos.”
Those quotations are just a small part of the picture of Russia presented in the book and reveal extremely realistic picture of Russian history.
The book is engaging thriller with a serious analysis of Russia’s history and fates of the Russian people.
In Moscow Rules Gabriel is sent to deal with a rogue businessman with no qualms about making a pact with the devil in order to make a handsome profit. Unfortunately, with the fall of Communism in the former Soviet Union and the emergence of a free market economy regulated by elements who were members of the former apparatchik, the deals with extremist militants and governments intent on defeating the West have become a serious problem. Moscow Rules, as the other books in the series may be a work of fiction but raises serious concerns that Western society better address before it’s too late.
