As someone who was always fascinated by the USSR, I found this story to be very interesting. The writing was witty and the characters interesting enough to keep me reading. I haven't read the previous books in the series and not once felt like I was missing out on anything. Overall a very enjoyable read.

The third book in the series and I think it has improved - but I don't know if I would really recommend it to anyone. It's ok - but really not that compelling. I think if you are REALLY into ice skating it would probably be a good book for you - but I just feel like - as a whole - it's kind of milk toast.

This series has improved since the first book. It was a quick read with an interesting murder mystery. I like that the focus of the story was mainly on the mystery and suspects and not so much on Bex.

This mystery keeps you guessing. Bex is in Russia as a coach has been murdered. She has a helper named Sasha who looks 18 but is her age, 24.
