From William Ryan, author of The Holy Thief: “Bayer tells a taut, gritty tale that gives a fresh and revealing insight into the Soviet Union of the Khrushchev years. Not only that, but in Pavel Matyushkin, his tough and self-confident hero, he has developed a great detective that leaves readers wanting more. Now.”
Alexei Bayer is a New York-based author, translator and, by economic necessity, an economist. He writes in English and in Russian, his native tongue, and translates into both languages. His short stories have been published in Kenyon Review, Chtenia and NER issues 26.1 and 31.2. Murder at the Dacha is currently being produced as a mini-series for Russian television.
Murder at the Dacha is available in English from Amazon.
