The Secret History of Moscow

by Ekaterina Sedia

The Secret History is a romp through 1990s Moscow, where the underground is a world of magic and secrets that may hold the answer to a rash of mysterious disappearances. It is an offbeat, engaging story that offers a rich portrait of a grey Moscow. It suffers only for lack of a more aggressive editor’s pen – to eradicate a slew of distracting typos.

— Paul E. Richardson
