Saving Ivan is a fast-moving thriller set against the political background of post-communist Russia, dominated by high-level corruption, murder and intrigue. The plot twists and turns, switching from the streets of Moscow to the London social scene; from the office of the President of Russia to the Mafia-controlled turf; from the headquarters of the former KGB at Lubyanka to the millionaire's row of Kensington, W8. From the first page things are not what they seem and each player in the drama has his own secret agenda. Former KGB agents operate alongside Russian gangsters, aided by top Kremlin officials, and there is a hit squad on the loose in Moscow carrying out murders on the orders of someone at the very top of the political ladder. An international team of professionals gathers in the Russian capital to take on a powerful criminal gang and save the son of a Russian diplomat only to find a sinister trail leading to London. In a desperate race against time they try to prevent a major crime being committed in the heart of the British capital. ALEXANDER NEKRASSOV has an intimate knowledge of how things work in the corridors of power in Moscow, having been a special advisor to the Kremlin and an investigative journalist. He now lives in London and is a broadcaster and commentator on Russian affairs. He is a direct descendent of both Leo Tolstoy and the famous nineteenth-century Russian poet Nikolai Nekrassov. His second thriller, The Russian Roulette, is coming out soon.
