    My son-in-law finished The Asset and gave it to me to read. I no sooner finished the last page than I immediately ordered The Russian and will probably order every book in the series. Herzog’s knowledge of Russia’s hierarchy, geography, history and the whole CIA spy network is almost beyond belief. Totally mesmerizing!
