Críticas:

'Ryan's novel has an authority that belies his first-novel status... Ryan demonstrates considerable skill in evoking this benighted period, along with a deftness at ringing the changes on familiar crime plotting moves.The auguries for a series, of which The Holy Thief is the first book, are very promising indeed.' --Daily Express

'impressive debut.' --Saturday Times Review

'excellently-observed characters who exist in a nightmarish world of fear, suspicion and danger. Ryan skillfully captures the reality of life in the most spied-upon society in history...The Holy Thief is an impressive debut from Ryan. It pulls off the difficult task of laying down ample foundations for a scheduled subsequent series without burdening its narrative drive with excessive back-story detail. I look forward to Captain Korolev's further exploits under the cold gaze of Comrade Stalin.' --Yorkshire Evening Post

'It's a tough, suspenseful premise for a debut, contrasting claustrophobic atmosphere with personal optimism in a way that can only intensify as the series continues.'
--Financial Times

'Plunges the reader into an atmospherically conjured 1930's Moscow'
--The Independent

'Set in a vividly imagined Stalinist Russia, where the creeping paranoia of a surveillance state blends perfectly with the brutal serial murders' --Metro
