Child 44 Reviews
"Starred Review. The evocation of the deadly cloud-cuckoo-land of Russia during Stalin's final days will remind many of Gorky Park and Darkness at Noon, but the novel remains Smith's alone, completely original and absolutely satisfying." - Publishers Weekly.
"With some 20 foreign sales to date and film rights already in Ridley Scott's hands, this successor to Hannibal Lector's lurid mantle has nonstop plotting, a nonstop pace, and even a surprise ending. Horror genre readers will thrill to it; others may be advised to ask for a barf bag as well as their date due slip." - Library Journal.
"Nerve-wracking pace and atmosphere camouflage wild coincidences. Smashing." - Kirkus Reviews.
"Child 44 is a remarkable debut novel - inventive, edgy and relentlessly gripping from the first page to the last." - Scott Turow.
"An amazing debut-rich, different, fully formed, mature ... and thrilling." - Lee Child.
"This is a truly remarkable debut novel. Child 44 is a rare blend of great insight, excellent writing, and a refreshingly original story. Favorable comparisons to Gorky Park are inevitable, but Child 44 is in a class of its own." - Nelson DeMille.
