Critical Praise

“Talia Carner has a sharp eye for detail and a captivating storytelling eloquence. HOTEL MOSCOW is...[a] wonderful evocation of time and place and an insightful post-Cold War thriller which reminds us that in Russia the more that changes, the more that stays the same.”

—Nelson DeMille

“HOTEL MOSCOW is a tantalizing book full of corruption, extortion and shocking treatment of women --- and that is just the tip of the Russian iceberg. Talia Carner’s engaging style draws you in with its powerful description of life in Russia 20 months after the fall of communism. I was mesmerized from beginning to end.”

—Deborah Rodriguez, author of THE KABUL BEAUTY SCHOOL

“Talia Carner sweeps us away along with her brave and determined heroine to an exotic and complex time and place, and keeps us riveted with the tension and dangers of international intrigue. A real page-turner!”

—Tami Hoag, New York Times bestselling author of COLD COLD HEART
