About to start #Agent6 , the third instalment of this trilogy by #TomRobSmith . Historical literature could easily be my favourite genre, and where I've often read about stories during war, this one starts during Stalin's regime and dives into the corrupt mind of the absolute - the hidden horrors of a "perfect" civilization where crime and speaking out "do not exist".
I read the second book first and the first second, but they are nicely separated (however connecting characters) that one could do so.
While #Child44 hunts a gruesome child mutilator (inspired by real-life investigation of Andrei Chikatilo) , #TheSecretSpeech moves into religious prosecution, heading to where I am now, with protagonist Leo Demidov.
The description of atmosphere, character, thoughts, and events is wonderful. I can't wait to see where the third takes me... but also wonder... who did I lend The Secret Speech to?
