Giveaway of The Secret Speech by Tom Rob Smith


The Secret Speech
by Tom Rob Smith

Tom Rob Smith's debut, Child 44, was an international bestseller and was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize. Now he returns with The Secret Speech.

Stalin is dead, and the brutal Soviet regime once held together by fear is beginning to unravel, leaving behind a society where the police are the bloodiest criminals of all. Former Secret Police Officer Leo Demidov is struggling to put his former career behind him, to make a life for himself, his wife, Raisa, and the two young sisters they adopted. But will the mistrust and betrayals from Leo's own past shatter his family's ability to love and forgive -- or destory them in ways unimaginable?



Tom Rob Smith graduated from Cambridge University in 2001 and lives in London. His first novel, Child 44, was a New York Times bestseller and an international publishing sensation. Among its many honors, Child 44 won the ITW 2009 Thriller Award for Best First Novel, The Strand Magazine 2008 Critics Award for Best First Novel, the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award, and was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize.

This will make a great introduction to the study of life in the Soviet Union during the Cold War era.

Is there anything better than a good intrigue novel? I don't think so.
