A high government official is shot on the street, and the hunt for the killer begins. The search leads all over the world, netting a series of suspects whose only connection is their innocence - at least of this crime. But The Case of Comrade Tulayev, the best novel about the Stalinist purges, is also a classic tale of risk and adventure that stands beside For Whom the Bell Tolls. It is a masterpiece, now available again after 30 years.

Look behind stage at Russian "Trial"

I was referred to this story by Christopher Hitchens and gave it a shot. It was dark and well written but sad in its overall cold war conclusions. Hitchens was one of our true intellectuals and that's what sold me on the book. Historically, a must read if you are interested in Russian history and a nation based on lies. Lot's of history behind Victor Serge a revolutionary worth knowing about.
