Summary
A Boston art historian in Russia becomes a pawn for a deadly KGB agent gone rogue in this thriller from a #1 New York Times --bestselling author. Shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, three strangers converge on the newly unified city and become entangled in conspiracy and murder. Francesca McDermott, an elegant young art historian from Boston, arrives to curate an exhibition of Russian revolutionary art censored and suppressed under Stalin. The mysterious Dr. Andrei Serotkin, an arrogant but seductive colleague from Moscow, comes to assist her. And Nikolai Gerasimov is sent by the newly constituted FSB to track down Andrei Orlov, a rogue agent of the former KGB. Then, in a villa in Germany, two émigré smugglers wanted in the theft of priceless Russian iconography are found dead--victims of a gruesome torture-murder. But they are only the first keys to unlocking the secrets of a conspiracy that has trapped Francesca as a pawn, drawing her deeper into a maze of betrayal and espionage of chaotic global impact. A Patriot in Berlin "builds irresistibly ... [and is] a thoughtful thriller that once you have finished you actually want to read over again" from the Somerset Maugham Award--winning author of Alive (The New York Times)
