*Longlisted for the 2017 CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger for best thriller*

'Even better than Child 44' Daily Telegraph


'Peppered with memorable characters, carved with precision, ... highly recommended' Shots Magazine
'Given that the definitive thriller in 1980's Moscow already exists (Gorky Park), Moskva looks like a crazy gamble. But it's one that comes off' Sunday Times

'A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma . . .'

January, 1986. A week after disgraced Intelligence Officer Tom Fox is stationed to Moscow the British Ambassador's fifteen-year-old daughter goes missing. Fox is ordered to find her, and fast. But the last thing the Soviets want is a foreign agent snooping about on their turf. Not when a killer they can't even acknowledge let alone catch is preparing to kill again . . .

A Cold War thriller haunted by an evil legacy from the Second World War, Moskva is a journey into the dark heart of another time and place.

'Mesmerising, surefooted, vividly realised . . . something special in the arena of international thrillers' Financial Times

'A compulsive and supremely intelligent thriller from a master stylist' Michael Marshall, author of The Straw Men

'A blizzard of exciting set pieces, superbly realized' Daily Telegraph

MEDIA REVIEWS
Like the city herself, Jack Grimwood's Moskva is richly layered, stylish, beautifully constructed, and full of passion beneath the chills. Part political thriller, part historical novel, part a story of personal redemptions, Moskva cements Jack Grimwood as a powerful new voice in thriller writing. Not to be missed. -- Sarah Pinborough
Even better than Child 44 * Telegraph *
Given that the definitive thriller in 1980's Moscow already exists (Martin Cruz Smith's Gorky Park), Jack Grimwood's Moskva looks like a crazy gamble. But it's one that comes off . . . * Sunday Times *
Tom Fox is well drawn, the action scenes are filled with energy and tension, but the real hero of Moskva is Russia itself, bleak, corrupt, falling apart, but with an incurable humanity -- Tom Callaghan
A compulsive and supremely intelligent thriller from a master stylist -- Michael Marshall
A first-rate thriller - Moskva grips from the very first page. Heartily recommended -- William Ryan

Hard to know what to praise first here: the operatic sweep of this mesmerising novel; the surefooted orchestration of tension; or the vividly realised sense of time and place; all of these factors mark Jack Grimwood's Moskva out as something special in the arena of international thrillers

-- Barry Forshaw * Financial Times *
Memorable characters, powerful recreations of history and an unrelenting pace that will keep you breathless. A striking debut in the genre. -- Maxim Jakubowski
A sublime writer . . . I felt glimmers of Le Carre shining through the prose. -- CrimeSquad
If you love thrillers Jack Grimwood is the name you need to remember... -- Viv Groskop * BBC Radio 2, Sara Cox Show *

“If you love 'Gorky Park'...”

It’s a brave writer indeed who pitches up with an idea for a thriller set in 1980’s Moscow, as we all know and love Gorky Park, and many have failed in its wake. But good news crime buddies, Grimwood has cracked it... More
