Volk’s Game

Cover of Volk's Game.

The review on the front said “Brent Ghelfi writes like Dostoevsky’s hooligan great-grandson on speed.” How can you resist a line like that? The hero of this international thriller is a rather bad Russian guy. It’s hip and hooligan for sure. It was OK, I enjoyed some of the characters, but it had a little too much off-color material for my taste.
