Review

Primarily, when we think of spy fiction, we think of the Cold War and beyond. After all, that's when the world's spy agencies really came to prominence and managed to secure a seemingly unbreakable hold. It's not so often that we get to see spy fiction set in another era.
Hugh Ashton's Red Wheels Turning is exactly that, providing us a spy story set in the first World War. More than that, it provides us with an alternate world, one in which America's Civil War never happened and there actually is a Confederate States of America. However, that merely serves as the backdrop. It was, apparently, a factor in Ashton's Beneath Gray Skies, which Red Wheels Turning is a prequel to.
Ashton provides a great protagonist with Brian Finch-Malloy, a British agent tasked with preventing two of Tsarist Russia's weapons of war, the Netopyr and the Zaamurets, from falling into the hands of sinister Bolshevik agent Kolinski.
The real treat of the book for me was watching how all the spying and back-stabbing occurred in a classic setting. While in these days, some of the tactics employed by Kolinski probably wouldn't work as well, it is perfectly believable that they'd work flawlessly in a Russia on the verge of revolution.
Ashton is most known for his work on Sherlock Holmes, but he proves with Red Wheels Turning that he's capable of building his own imaginative worlds and populating them with fascinating characters."
