This week, J. Kingston Pierce chooses Agent 6 by Tom Rob Smith:
Former Moscow secret policeman Leo Demidov’s wife and two daughters travel to New York City in 1950 as part of a “peace tour,” only to be implicated in the killing of an African-American singer. Afterwards, Demidov — denied the chance to investigate officially — launches a years-long, international quest for truth … and revenge.
Looking for previous Pierce’s Picks? Twelve months of them are here. And though the Pierce’s Pick archive will remain on January Magazine, going forward, you’ll find the weekly Pierce’s Pick on January’s sister publication, the crime fiction-focused Rap Sheet.
