Reviews

It would make a cracking Hollywood thriller ... The Lockhart Plot is terrifically entertaining. Schneer does an excellent job of evoking the paranoid atmosphere of Russia in 1918, and his book teems with colourful characters. * Dominic Sandbrook, The Sunday Times *
A rollicking and thriller-like narrative that captures the chaos and turbulence of post-revolutionary Petrograd and Moscow. * Jonathan Steele, The Guardian *
Excellent ... [This pacey] book is worth reading for its character portraits alone. * Alexander Watson, Literary Review *
A cracking book. * Mark Rowe, Professional Security Magazine *
Bruce Lockhart, debonair British secret agent, and Felix Dzerzhinsky, ruthless mastermind of the Soviet security service, face off in a deadly duel of smoke and mirrors. At stake: the fate of the Russian Revolution itself. It's an incredible story and Jonathan Schneer tells it with wit, panache and a razor-sharp historical sensibility. A brilliant examination that finally uncovers the mysteries of the Lockhart Plot. * Marc Mulholland, Professor of Modern History at Oxford University and author of The Murderer of Warren Street *
