What made the experience of listening to Russian Roulette the most enjoyable?
This detailed biographical history of the beginning of MI 6 during and after WW-1 and the subsequent infiltration of the Bolsheviks, Lenin's Cominterm - with world revolution especially in India and the current middle east which sheds light on current events and spies with nerves of steel, a flair for unimaginable danger, and quick intellect. Wow!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Cummins, AKA "C"........he invented the whole affair....
Have you listened to any of Napoleon Ryan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, but his performance was brilliant and he sounds like a spy!
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Tea And Vodka On The Eastern Front
Any additional comments?
If you have read "Farewell" this book is made for you, brother!

I wrote a review already and it disappeared, so forgive me not working too hard at it. This was a very good depiction of the early days of the Russian Revolution from an unsympathetic side.....the opposite of "Reds", one could say. It was a terrific story with startlingly dangerous feats being attempted in the very early days of British spying. We forget that the fear of a worldwide communist revolution was justified at the time, which also contributed to the rise of fascism. The characters and stories are vivid and fascinating and with some in central Asia, resonate with us today. How amazing that the Soviets wanted to make use of the highly religious Muslims for their own purposes!
