Praise

“This thrilling and suspenseful and original thriller of murder and power is a compelling voyage into the darkest secret city of the soviet nuclear project by an expert on all of Russian life.”
Simon Sebag Montefiore, New York Times bestselling author of The Romanovs and Stalin

“There are some authors who have gone out into the world to observe the good, the bad and the ugly. Owen Matthews is such a novelist. Black Sun is fascinating and has fearsome authenticity.”
Frederick Forsyth, #1 New York Times-bestselling author

“A stunning debut. Matthews writes enviably well and knows Soviet Russia inside-out. Fantastic.”
Charles Cumming, New York Times bestselling author of The Trinity Six

“To call the novel chilling is an understatement…If you think you already know about the Soviet drive for world dominance via nuclear supremacy and the extent to which it was enforced by brutality, secrets, and surveillance but foiled by ideological conflict and a corrupt Politburo, think again.”
Booklist (starred review)

“Matthews is especially adept at limning the bureaucratic infighting and political double-dealing that permeate Soviet society…The persistence of history is a powerful tidal presence.”
Kirkus
