Online Book Discussion - 36 Yalta Boulevard

Wednesday, June 17, 2009 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific

Audio Book Discussions: 36 Yalta Boulevard, by Olen Steinhauer

Set in Eastern Europe in 1966, this is the tale of Brano Sev, who has been framed by a fellow spy. In order to redeem himself, he tracks a person of interest who has appeared in his childhood village. The reviewer in Booklist noted, "With its shifting perceptions, pervasive paranoia, and truly unpredictable plot, this will be savored by readers of well-crafted espionage ranging from Alan Furst to John le Carre." We'll be discussing the Blackstone Audio edition, narrated by Yuri Rasovsky.
