Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Jo Epstein (Ask the Dead), a New York performance poet and PI, is hired by her migré stepfather, Nikolai, to prove him innocent of murder. The trail of evidence to clear Nikolai is almost nonexistent since he will not explain anything to Jo. Then Nikolai leaves New York as the bad guys close in, and Jo follows him to Moscow. VERDICT Intricately layered like the Russian nested doll of the title, this tale of vengeance and hatred flavored with a Russian cultural backdrop will appeal to readers who enjoy unusual mysteries with an international setting.

Review

Joyce Yarrow's second case for private eye Jo Epstein not only opens a window on 1950s Russia, where thieves and political exiles all face the same brutal realities in post-Stalinist gulags--but on how lives warped then play out in the present... An unusual and very well crafted story with astonishing characters.
~ Barbara Peters
~ The Poisoned Pen 

"Joyce Yarrow, writing the second in her series of Jo Epstein mysteries, may very well prove herself to be the Mickey Spillane of the 21st century."  ~ FCEtier, Blogcritics.org for Seattle Post Intelligencer

"...a multi-layered complicated story, best represented by those nesting dolls with one story inside another. You'll want to discover the secrets buried in The Last Matryoshka." ~ Lesa Holstine, Lesa's Book Critiques
