December 1991. Beautiful American banker Alice Liddell has arrived in Moscow as it reels under the collapse of the Soviet Union and suffers a brutal war between mafia gangs for control of the violently changing city. Hired to oversee the privatization of Russia's legendary vodka distillery-the Red October-Alice soon finds her ideals compromised by its director Lev, a gangland member as dangerously seductive as he is ruthless. When a shadowy enemy vows revenge on Lev, and a series of bizarre serial murders erupts in the darkest corners of the city, Alice finds herself being drawn into the dangerously violent underground world of Moscow. "[A] dense, captivating novel of modern-day Russia . . . so fascinating that delighted readers will gulp it down like the novel's free-flowing, ubiquitous vodka."-Publishers Weekly "A potent crime thriller cocktail."-Library Journal
