#FirstLineFriday: Child 44

This book is special to me because it’s the book that rekindled my reading passion – the first book I read for leisure since I was 10-11 years old. I actually bought it because of Tom Hardy. I love him and at that time he was just confirmed to play Leo.

Took me two months before I pick it up and read, and then the rest is history lol! It’s a well written thriller and imagining Tom Hardy face while reading made the book even more exciting.


★ Book Details ★

Child 44 (Leo Demidov #1) by Tom Rob Smith
Amazon | Goodreads

In a country ruled by fear, no one is innocent.

Stalin’s Soviet Union is an official paradise, where citizens live free from crime and fear only one thing: the all-powerful state. Defending this system is idealistic security officer Leo Demidov, a war hero who believes in the iron fist of the law, but when a murderer starts to kill at will and Leo dares to investigate, the State’s obedient servant finds himself demoted and exiled. Now, with only his wife at his side, Leo must fight to uncover shocking truths about a killer–and a country where “crime” doesn’t exist.
