White Pawn on Red Square
At the height of the Cold War a Russian girl plots to steal the mummified body of Lenin and use it as a hostage to free her dissident brother and others from a Siberian gulag. She recruits five people, each with a motive for settling scores with Lenin; she lures an English diplomat, who loves her, into the conspiracy. But someone is a traitor; two plotters die and four others land in the notorious Lubyanka prison before one of the group hatches a plan to outwit the KGB. DonOCOt miss this exciting tale of love, scheming, and Russian terror and torture. Boson Books also offers The Bent Pyramid and Rogues in the Gallery by Hugh McLeave.
