Mystery & Suspense • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

A Russian boy has intensely personal discussions with an old man about the country's controversial leader, Josef Stalin--but is the man not what he seems? Narrator Andrew Eiden presents this fascinating, if slow moving, audiobook with particular attention to the dialogue that shows the trust and understanding of the boy. Narrator Rachel Jacobs shows a wide range of skills while conjuring the voices of Russian women. The boy, Leon Rosental, discovers a tunnel that leads to a mysterious room in a building where Russian leaders secretly meet. There he encounters a mysterious, troubled old man who enjoys bantering with the child about politics. The listener will figure out the twist long before the characters, which is part of the fun.
