MOSCOW EMBASSY THE Angara Club is a realistic fictional story written by Thomas J. Mitchell. It is a story of romance, deceit, and espionage. The story is based on real-life events during the construction of the Moscow embassy by the American construction workers.
JT Miller is a hardworking civil engineer who is employed by the government to work on the construction of the US Embassy located in Moscow. Major Karlov from the Russian KGB agency wants to rope in Miller to install spy cameras and microphones in the US Embassy. Karlov uses Irene, A beautiful Russian school teacher, to attract Miller and trap him in this treachery. Irene unwillingly accepts the assignment but ends up falling in love with Miller. Will Miller be able to escape this trap? How will he save himself and his lady love from the KGB? Read the book to find out more.
What I liked most about this book is that although it is essentially a story of espionage and one organization outwitting the other, the author has managed to present the beautiful romance between Miller and Irene. Miller and Irene are both in a compromised situation, but they don’t let this disrupt their love for each other. I also liked the way the author has described the personalities of each of the characters in the book. He has done complete justice in explaining the likes and dislikes of the characters, which bring them to life and enhances the reading experience. The story of coffee told by Necdet’s father is particularly fascinating. The book also throws light upon the unique industry of embassy construction workers. The lives of these workers, their stories, and tragedies, are highlighted in the book.
There is nothing that I disliked about this book. The plot is streamlined, which keeps you glued to the book. The author has added realistic pictures of different locations in Moscow mentioned in the book. These pictures help in imagining the scenes in the story and make it more engaging. The Russian culture, food, and lifestyle are portrayed well in the book.
This book is well-written and professionally edited. It is full of suspense and romance that makes it hard to put down. I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. This book has some erotic content due to which I recommend it only to adults above 18 years of age. Readers who enjoy stories involving espionage may find this book particularly fascinating. Also, those who are interested in construction work and Russian culture will enjoy reading this book.
