    It is a society that is, officially, a paradise. Superior to the decadent West, Stalin's Soviet Union is a haven for its citizens, providing for all of their needs: education, health care, security. In exchange, all that is required is their hard work, and their loyalty and faith to the Soviet State. But now a murderer is on the loose.

    Melvin says: "Terror from all sides."
    "Excellent story with vivid, engaging setting"
    Overall

    Beginning with a description of the blight of Russian communism in the 1930's your stomach will actually cry for food. This book really draws you in so you feel for the characters. After two years of listening to audiobooks this is my overall favorite. There are several well developed characters, all of which are 100% believable. You will not regret getting this book, I am recommending it to everyone. Many stories of this type suffer from predictability, and this usually causes me to shy away from detective novels. This is not the case for "Child 44". Another high point is the narration, it is clear, articulate and imitates a perfect russian accent when appropriate.
