I read Messiah by Boris Starling a few years ago and I still rate it as one of the best thrillers I have read I perhaps unfairly set my expectations pretty high for VodkaSadly I didn t enjoy it as much as I d hoped to There were passages that were very enjoyable and genuinely tense but these were few and far between I appreciate that a certain amount of background and scene setting is needed In this case readers need to get a feel of Moscow and Russia in the period immediately following the departure of Gorbachev and the first faltering steps of the fledgling market economy There was also a story thread of Russian mafiya bosses fighting a turf war Another story thread focused on an Estonian detective trying to solve the murders of some children The story threads weren t really cohesive and I never really felt that magic of being completely immersed in the storyI would have preferred this book if it had focused on the detective trying to catch the serial killer who was murdering children Once this story thread was resolved I lost a lot of interest and was just waiting for the endFor me it was too much filler and not enough thriller

What initially appeared to be a political thriller turned out to be something else The story is set at the time of the collapse of the Soviet Union a time of uncertainty and chaos with Russia seemingly in the grips of organised crime Certain political forces want to propel Russia into the 21st century and so the privatisation of Russian businesses is on the agenda but where to startInto this turmoil walks Alice Liddell privatisation wizard of the IMF and her husband Lewis Russia s fundamental business Vodka is chosen to be the first and she is in charge of ensuring that the auction runs successfully in just weeks rather than months or years She is up against Lev current owner of the vodka factory Red October and a major Moscow crime lord He is in a war against the Chechen crime syndicates for control of the business and neither side knows the meaning of moderationNor does Alice but her problem is the vodka and Lev in both cases a lovehate relationship To this background underlies a series of murders of children who is the serial killer and is there any connection to the events in uestionAgainst all this is the ongoing political struggle for control of Russia with characters that give every appearance of being thinly veiled representations of Yeltsin and PutinThe story is well constructed but in the end it does seem to be much an investigation of the destructive effects on lives health and relationships of alcoholism that it is is difficult to tell what the author intended to be the main theme of the book This is the first of Starling s books I have read I m not sure if I would read any others although as I didn t see the TV serialisation of his famous book Messiah I might give that a try

Well it s a bit hard to review this one I read it while in a mental ward during a nervous breakdown Reading the book and then looking at the people around me I was very hard put to figure out who was the most nuts maybe it was just meThe female lead goes on a long trip down fuelled by the eponymous alcohol Not sure where the plot was going or where it actually ended up but I was on medication at the time so perhaps I can be excused I seem to remember enjoying reading it that s why I gave it three stars but I plead diminished responsibilityUpdate 112017Just reviewed my review on this and it has just got through to me that the name of the main character is Alice Liddell Once again I plead the fact that I was down my own personal rabbit hole at the time and didn t catch that reference
