    1. PROTAGONIST: Charlie Muffin, MI5 agentSETTING: Moscow SERIES: #14 of 14RATING: 3.5It all began with the shooting of a one-armed man in a cheap suit and cardboard shoes. Ordinarily, such a death would have attracted no attention. However, the fact that the body was found on the grounds of the British Embassy in Moscow and the murder assumed to have been committed there has raised the stakes. According to an agreement between the British and the Russians, such a situation results in an investigati [...]


    2. It was a bit slow at points. The story is about a murder. I kept wanting the plot to develop. But very little progress was ever made towards solving the murder. The espionage aspects were enjoyable. But I had started reading the second book so the plot twists were kinda ruined. :(Overall I enjoyed it. I will go into the second with a different expectation.


    3. Good old Charlie come through again in the end. This book is more in the style of the earliest ones and which have gathers many fans to Charlie's adventures. Without divulging the total plot I am glad I never aspired to be the assistant director-general.


    4. Veteran MI5 agent Charlie Muffin arrives at the British Embassy in Moscow ready to solve a murder. Instead, he runs into jurisdictional issues as the Russians have since removed the dead Russian body (as well as the evidence) found on embassy grounds to their facilities. Of course, they do promise full cooperation. Add to that the facts that the victim's face was beyond recognition, fingers burned in acid, and an inoperable security video system at the embassy, interestingly enough after someone [...]


    5. A body has been located on the grounds of the British embassy. M15 agent, Charlie Muffin has been sent from London to investigate. It appears at first that the murder was gang related. Though, the deeper Charlie digs, he uncovers something that someone wants desperately to keep hidden. Charlie will have to watch his back or he will be the next dead body. As if Charlie doesn’t already have enough on his place, Charlie ends up reconnecting with his wife Natalia and their daughter, Sasha. Natalia [...]

    7. Interesting spy read with a very unexpected ending. The body of a murdered, tortured Russian has been found in Moscow, which isn’t unusual in the crime-ridden city. What is different is that this corpse is on the lawn of the British embassy. Eager to prevent an international incident, London dispatches veteran MI5 agent Charlie Muffin to investigate. Charlie is an old hand who recognizes that little has changed in the post—Soviet Union, most definitely not the espionage enmity between Russia [...]


    8. Another installment in the terrific Charlie Muffin spy series. Where Le Carre can be wordy and obtuse (and I don't mean that in a bad way), Freemantle's writing is direct and concise, with no wasted words or time. Which doesn't mean he can't come up with a labyrinthine plotline full of surprising twists and turns. Muffin is one of my favorite spy characters, brilliant and always several steps ahead of everyone else, but embattled by his own people and always on the verge of being sacked. This ti [...]


    9. A very different sort of spy thriller, focusing more on internal security concerns playing out in the midst of an international murder mystery. The story keeps piling on layer after layer of mysteries and complications before finally revealing everything rapidly and unexpectedly in the final two chapters. I didn't enjoy this one as much as Red Star Burning (which I mistakenly read first, not realizing it was the middle book in the story arc), but it was still get enjoyable. Perhaps suffered a bi [...]


    10. Classic espionage fiction updated to the post-cold war world but ironically still set in Moscow and involving tensions between the US, UK and Russia.A body at the British embassy in Moscow sets up what should be a murder investigation but, as is so often the case, nothing is as it appears. And it the case isn't complicated enough M15 agent Charlie Muffin is trying to sort out his family and his future at the same time.This is the first Charlie Muffin book I have read and I think I will need to g [...]


    11. The cover of this book touts Brian Freemantle as LeCarre's equal. That is, to say the last, over selling. I can see where it comes from, Red Star Rising's Charlie Muffin is reminiscent of a George Smiley. Still, Freemantle doesn't achieve LeCarre's stark realism and story creation.Yet, I enjoyed the book. The focus was on the internal politics of espionage instead of the operations side which was interesting. And I got caught up with the characters and the story and enjoyed reading it. I will re [...]


    12. It kept twisting and twisting, although I'm not a good enough detective/reader to figure out where it was going, so I got lost.Then, everything was exposed in a tape playback out of left field as something else entirely, and lots of people were suddenly affected, spinning it all off in another direction, all within the last 10 pages or so. Rather deflating, I thought.


    13. English agent Charlie Muffin is flown to Moscow when a faceless body is found at the English embassy there. Tasked with solving the murder, he battles FSB disinformation, incompetency within his own embassy, etc to crack the case and the bigger one that surrounds it.
