Welcome to the Hotel Yalta

An heiress who can’t seem to keep her legs closed. A Russian plan for dominating the space race. An assassin with a penchant for rich food and sadistic murder. When you’re alone in the cold, passion and betrayal are commodities and love hangs on by an icy thread. From the author of The Bone Church and Cold, comes a white knuckle tour de force of Cold War noir.




If you love Anne Lamott and Jenny Lawson, COLD might just be the next book that keeps you up all night turning pages. Experience what advance readers have called "magical" "raw" and "gorgeous storytelling."
