I’m kicking off the blog tour for the Black Wolf by G.D.Abson, how exciting.
A young woman is found dead on the outskirts of St Petersburg on a freezing January morning. She has no injuries, and heavy snowfall has buried all trace of an attacker.
Government security services immediately shut down the case, and Natalya suspects the authorities have something to hide. When the dead woman is revealed to be an anti-Putin activist, Natalya has to go undercover to expose the truth.
But with her career at stake and her own family in danger, how far is she prepared to go?
A captivating, pacy thriller that plunges right into the beating heart of Putin’s Russia.
Black Wolf is book 2 of 2 in the Natalya Ivanova Thrillers Series, his first being Motherland.
So I was super excited to read this as it’s something I’m not used to reading, but always interests me. I heard a little about this book – and was really intrigued by the blurb, so I had to get in on the blog tour.
I really enjoyed Black Wolf overall it was a huge page turner, and had me really on edge throughout, I enjoy it when you are gripped from the beginning and can’t put it down, which is exactly what happened with this book.
This book was set in Russia, which I can’t say is a place I’ve read books set in, so it was interesting to read about. I enjoyed the female lead throughout the book, which is a something different in a detective book. I enjoyed getting to know Natalya throughout the book, and following her throughout.
If you enjoy any detective kind of books then I’d defiantly recommend this.
