Publisher's Summary

When a body with Russian military tattoos is found floating in a lake outside Berlin, the CIA immediately takes notice. And the murder coincides with the defection of one of the CIA's upper-level officers.

Alden Maines crosses the Rubicon and decides to cash in as a double agent for Russia. But Arkady Lavrov of Russia's intelligence service (GRU) has other plans. He immediately announces Maines' defection to the world and then pumps him for every last ounce of intel. Analyst Jonathan Burke and agent Kyra Stryker are up against their most formidable enemy yet, and their lives and the fate of America's most important assets in the New Cold War hang in the balance.

A very pleasant spy thriller surprise!

I had never read any Mark Henshaw books or heard of the Red Cell series. The Fall of the Moscow Station was a Kindle special at $1.99 with a Whispersync for Voice Audible edition special price of $3.49 making the total little more 50% of the cost of an Audible credit. That is great for a very recently released novel.

The plot is a sound one with lots of action, suspense, twists, and turns. The author is ex-CIA and the novel is CIA. This book is a very worthwhile listen. Narration is not stellar, but it is more than adequate.

Good 3rd Edition to the series

Once again Mark Henshaw created a thoughtful tale packed with his first hand experience with the US Intelligence services making the novel far more interesting and educational as compared to the other seemingly mass produced spy thrillers.
The narration was good, the ending was interesting, I think the author was not 100% sure
of how he wanted it to end but I think he made the right choice in the end.

Fun book for me to listen to in the car over several days are long drive

Enjoyed this book for the depth of characters and the veriest with in the plot. Enjoyed enough that I'll probably keep it on my phone and a couple three months listen to it again. Rarely if ever do that for a book

One of my Favorite Authors

Since reading Mark's first book, I have really looked forward to each of his next. His second booked continued the story of the two characters he developed and this newest book did as well. A great story that has riveting plot. Great twists and turns about characters that feel real unlike the superhuman "agent" novels written by others. There's real humanity in these characters and that's partly what makes the stories so compelling. Count me one of Henshaw's biggest fans. Ok Mark, get busy on the next one!

Riveting

Awesome story! I'm glad I had this in audio version because I found it hard to put down. I especially enjoyed the narrator's accent when speaking for the different characters, (though I am constantly speaking to myself in a heavy Russian accent...)

This was a very disappointing book...

The plot was far-fetched, and strained credulity beyond limits even tolerable for a novel.
As a general matter, I have really enjoyed the series..

Excellent story from start to finish!

This was a thoroughly satisfying book with action, suspense, strategy, and thrills. So excited for the next book in the series!

A wonderful read

This book took me straight into Russia, like I was sitting right next to the action. I first listened to it on the way to pick up my kids after school. The reader and the book drew me everyday. I couldn't wait to get in the car to see what striker was going to do next.

Not so hot

Would you try another book from Mark Henshaw and/or Eric G. Dove?

Probably not.

Any additional comments?

The title and category as a spy novel led me to expect much more than this book delivered. It is not macho-Rambo but it is certainly not in the league of something by Charles Cumming, Jason Matthews, Phillip Kerr, Wingall, etc. Russian bad guy was fairly cartoonish, U.S. good guys better drawn, but the plot was a bit silly.
