    1. The Red Moth by Sam Eastland is the fourth book in the Inspector Pekkala series Sadly, this book is not available in the U.S at the current time and I ordered it from the Book Depository UK The fifth book is also out but again not in this country Books 1 through 3 in the series are here in the U S so why not the rest As I was reading reviews on , one reviewer stated this is a 6 book series so this reader wanted to finished what she considers an improving storyline with each edition In Red Moth, [...]

    3. Once again the Pekkala series provided another exciting read For the first time the book hasn t been wrapped up and has ended with a cliff hanger making you eager to pick up and start reading the next instalment This wasn t my favourite in the series Siberian Red but I d say it was a very close 2nd Very good from start to finish, with a few twists along the way

    5. Sam Eastland does a good job at intertwining Russian facts and history into the fictional story, which he always clarifies fact from fiction at the end As my friends all know, I am a big fan of Russian history, specifically this time period I really enjoyed the first three books in the series but I did not think this was as good as the others for majority of the book Eastland does well with intrigue, throwing curve balls into the story line which is always appreciated There s nothing worse in a [...]

    6. I have read all of the Inspector Pekkala books, and I have enjoyed them all When is the next one coming out

    7. Sam Eastland s Inspector Pekkala novels have been among my favorite historical mystery series since the first book, Eye of the Red Tsar The books setting of Stalinist Russia tends to be cold, bleak, and brutal in other words quite truthful so I don t read them like potato chips No, these books I hoard, pulling one out to savor every so often I don t even read the synopsis I just pull the next book in the series from the shelf, open it, and begin to read Opening The Red Moth was like sitting down [...]

    8. Inspector Pekkala has been assigned to investigate the real meaning to a painting of a hyalophora cecropia, a red moth It was found in a downed German scout plane and Stalin wants to know why it is so important.It is a brutal time in history as Hitler crushes Russian troops while taking over the country Life has no value to Hitler and his army The only thing he is focused on is the accumulation of any and all art objects His Linz Museum will be a world masterpiece, when finished, and will hold a [...]

    9. At first, the setting of this fast paced wartime thriller seems a little odd Stalinist Russia is not your typical environment for this sort of book However, about halfway through the reader sees the pertinence of placing a spy type war novel in the USSR its rich Tsarist history provides many beautiful settings as well as fabulous treasures to hunt down and preserve I also understand positing the Russians as the moral opponents of the Nazis However, the author gets into murky ethical territory by [...]

    10. Pekkala returns and dives headlong into a mystery involving a painting of a moth, an advancing German army, and some old colleagues This is a thrilling adventure in World War II Soviet Union.Free review copy.

    11. Not as good as the others, which are or less outstanding This one took a long time to set up, and the conclusion was swiftly completed.

    12. This was a solid entry in the series Pekkala is a very interesting character and his relationship with Stalin makes this series fun to read.

    14.

    15. This, the fourth Pekkala novel, is somewhat special to me It is a story around something I know personally, have seen for myself The Amber Room, at the Catherine Palace outside of St Petersburg in Russia Well, not the actual Amber Room, but, I m getting a bit ahead of myself.It is 1941 and the German Army is pressing into western Russia Already it has over run Leningrad St Petersburg and is advancing towards Moscow Stalingrad stands in its way But, before that there is something that requires th [...]

    16. Inspector Pekkala is an enigmatic fictional character invented by Sam Eastland I read 5 novels 6th has just been released , out of which book 1 Eye of the Red Tsar and book 4 The Red Moth are the most interesting from a historical perspective providing wealth of information about people, time period though highly superficial.In the Red Moth Pekkala is tasked to recover famous amber room lost during Red Army s retreat in early days of German invasion of Soviet Union in 1941 The novel provides som [...]

    17. c2013 FWFTB 1941, Stalin, treasure, Tsar, mission Probably the most straight forward of the Inspector Pekkala series and probably one of those interim type books setting up the main character for a change in direction Well, considering the ending, I hope so Succinctly written with not a word wasted Believable dialogue and some lovely snappy lines It was a quick read and I m on the hunt for the next in the series Recommended to the normal crew That is the nature of the collector He must possess w [...]

    18. Thoroughly enjoyable, a history lesson with lots of intrigue, suspense and adventure Sam Eastland takes you on a great journey of discovery, well written and easily followed, though the Russian names were a little difficult to grasp at times The book touched on the relationship of Stalin s close advisors, enough to grasp his dictatorship and demands but it was the relationship of Pekkla, his personal detective that the story is derived from and his task of uncovering the mystery of the Red Moth [...]

    19. In this installment of the Inspector Pekkala series, it is August 1941 and Nazi Germany has invaded Russia A German scout plane, carrying a Luftwaffe pilot and a Waffen SS officer, is shot down behind Russian lines The Waffen SS officer has a briefcase that turns out to contain a painting of a red moth The painting, however, is the starting point of a mystery that involves Inspector Pekkala in a plot to steal an invaluable Romanov treasure The Red Moth is another treat from author Sam Eastland, [...]

    20. I might never have discovered the Inspector Pekkala series but for a recommendation Usually the early books of a series are the best in many cases so I am very pleasantly surprised that Mr Eastland has managed to sustain my interest at 5 star levels for four books now.The stories are well crafted, with engaging characters and suspenseful plots And if you have a taste for 20th century Russia then that s the icing on the cake.

    21. Can Pekkala manage to save the Amber Room of the Catherine Palace before the oncoming German Army arrives It is Hitler s aim to relocate the precious amber panels to the Konigsberg Castle until a special Gallery can be erected to house them It is Stalin s aim to move them to Moscow and prevent Hitler s mission not that he, Stalin, particularly cares about the artwork itself He merely wished to thwart his enemy.

    22. Inspector Pekkala s fourth outing from the pen of Sam Eastland sees the Finnish detective return to Tsar Nicholas II s summer residence as the Nazis overrun the area in 1941 Eastland s usual detail and ability to pull his reader along are once again in evidence, along with every good inspector s individual idiosyncrasies.If Eastland continues delivering yarns of this quality, it can t be too long before his audience widens considerably and films rights begin being discussed.

    23. Book 4 in the series featuring Inspector Pekkala, his sidekick Kirov and fluffy Uncle Joe Stalin This time it s 1941 and the Germans are invading Russia stealing priceless works of art.This time we re dealing with the mystery of what happened to the Amber Room.A nice read for when I don t want to over exert my brain that is not a criticism I love this series and already have the next one ready to read.

    24. I thought I would like this book because it s set in the Soviet Union, during German invasion and there was connection to the Romanovs.I didn t really like it though It bored me a lot, it made me want to stop reading the book many times.And to offend me I didn t like the end of the book.I like detective books, but it s a little boring in my opinion.Overall the writing is fine, the characters okay ish.

    25. Enjoyable thrilling reading, yes its number 4 in the series but still easy to follow and get into Weaving historical facts into a story based in Russia of the 1940 s 2WW the backdrop to art theft and the fabled Amber room a prized possession of the Romanovs, once considered to be the eighth wonder of the world which incidentally following the 2ww went missing and a number of official investigations has not found Will definitely read the rest of the series.

    26. 4 in the Pekkala series by Sam Eastland and as enjoyable to read as the first 3 in the series I am impressed with how well the author blends Russian history, details of Russian life after the revolution and during WWII, and Pekkala s story Hope the cliff hanger ending means another book is soon to come.

    27. A painting of a red moth is revealed to be a map showing the location of The Amber Room which the Russians have falsely claimed has been removed to a safe place to save it from the advancing German army The Emerald Eye, Inspector Pekkala, is ordered by Stalin to destroy it before it falls into German hands Another enjoyable read the Inspector is a great character.

    28. Sam Eastland has been one of my favourite authors right from his first book This fourth book in the Pekkala series is, in my opinion, the best yet A compelling story, historically based, well written with characters we can really care about or really hate Every book leaves me wanting and this one has me almost desperate for the next story.

    29. A painting of a moth is discovered on the body of a SS officer and Stalin orders an investigation.This was a bit of a disappointment It s not bad, but not as good as the others in the series the plotting and writing was not as sharp eloquent.

    30. This is the second book in this series I have read They work well as a stand alone read so I am not too bothered that I have missed a couple in between The story is fast paced and seems very historically accurate The lead character is well drawn and kept my interest high throughout.
