  • This is the final book in the Leo Demidov triology The first book Child 44 was excellent, the second one The Secret Speech was good but the final book, I am sorry to say, is mediocre at best.This book starts on the flashback mode and shows how Leo had met Raisa, his wife You would get to see Leo as a bumbling lovestruck man.Certain portions of the book where the Soviet officials were trying to convey how great life in the USSR was to a visiting American communist sympathizer, were actually comic [...]

  • Hey Sera Thanks for the buddy read It was inevitable that I would finish this series I loved Child 44 so much that I had to continue Of course, the story of Leo is much sadder than I hoped for, and I don t think books 2 and 3 were as quite as compelling as the first I liked this book way better than The Secret Speech though One of Tom Rob Smith s talents is he doesn t write melodramatically His prose is simple and to the point Never once does this book drag Smith s characters were interestingly [...]


  • 3.5This historical mystery thriller installment of Agent 6 concludes the Leo Demidov trilogy with a very different approach and style then its predecessors Not only will it come to the end of Leo s career and possibly life, but we are also reading in timelines before Child 44 and after Moscow, 1950 Leo meets his future wife while staging a sham tour of the Soviet system for American singer and communist activist Jesse Austin At chance and surprised, Raisa plays her part as she has been thrown in [...]


  • Description It is 1965 Leo Demidov, a former secret police agent, is forbidden to travel with his wife and daughters from Moscow to New York They are part of a Peace Tour, meant to foster closer relations between the two Cold War enemies On the tour, Leo s family is caught up in a conspiracy and betrayal that ends in tragedy In the horrible aftermath, Leo demands one thing that he be allowed to investigate and find the attacker that struck at the heart of his family on foreign soil From the high [...]


  • Agent 6 is the third installment of the Leo Demidov series about a Russian spy turned modern day hero Leo Demidov makes a compelling man equal parts rough and redeemable Two stories twisting together make this last book a little too long, and a little too drawn out for me Some parts still had that cliffhanger making me anxious to keep reading, and other sections I felt the need to skim over Great series with deeply drawn characters that I really enjoyed, just wish that the story arc didn t end s [...]


  • Here s the good news Agent 6,Tom Rob Smith s final installment in the Leo Demidov trilogy, is just as breathtakingly good asChild 44.This is a beautifully written book, with a plot almost too complex to summarize His spare, bleak prose, his masterful descriptions of place, love, grief and betrayal, his sympathy for the powerless of this world, his grasp of the way the past returns to influence the present, easily catapult him to the strata of writers like Graham Greene and John leCarre.Young Leo [...]

  • While I wouldn t go so far as to say this third part in the Leo Demidov trilogy is a disappointment, it is definitely the weakest of the three, which is always a shame for a trilogy.Don t get me wrong I enjoyed it The first half of the book, which shifts the spotlight away from Leo himself and onto his wife and two daughters, was really good It was a real shift in tone, which caught my attention and held it until the first act s tragic ending Said tragic ending was absolutely gutting, too.It s a [...]


  • Tom Rob Smith s newest book strays away from the darkness the Stalinist paranoia that made his first, Child 44, so good Instead, this is a meandering international thriller that brings Russia and Smith s Russian hero Leo Demidov into modern times Because the sickness of the serial killer is absent, this is a little less thrilling The threats of the KGB are also weaker Think slightly watered down John Le Carre.Leo and his wife Raisa are raising their two daughters when a unique opportunity is of [...]


  • A Superb Suspense Novel Set in the USSR, Afghanistan, and the U.S.The third book in a trilogy, Agent 6 concludes the story of Leo Demidov, a hero in the Great Patriotic War as the USSR termed World War II and later an agent in Stalin s secret police By way of introduction, the book opens in 1950 with Leo in thrall to the Sovet State, a senior officer in the MGB predecessor to the KGB and to today s FSB charged with training newly recruited agents Jesse Austin, a world famous African American sin [...]


  • SPOILERS HUGE SPOILERS DON T READ IF YOU DON T WANT TO KNOW 14 12 This was a disappointing end to a series I had been loving The title was totally misleading no mention of Agent 6 was made until page 483 and in a 544 page book that s a long time to wait to understand the title Even though he wasn t mentioned Leo didn t even know of his existence until the reader did , it was absolutely obvious who Agent 6 would be I was hoping I was wrong and that I would be surprised when the big reveal happene [...]


  • This is the third book in the Leo Demidov trilogy and I m quite sad to see it end I ve grown quite attached to Leo.In this book, Leo s family leaves him behind in Russia while they take the trip of a lifetime to America Raisa has been chosen to head up a concert involving students from America and Russia, sort of a unifying, peace act Leo s gut feeling is that Raisa and the girls shouldn t go, but he has no good reason for them not to, so he says goodbye This time, it s Elena that gets embroiled [...]


  • While the book was a decent read in itself I didn t enjoy it as much as the previous two It can be read as a standalone even though it s technically a continuation but nothing was really alluded to from previous books apart from the odd place or building description It s also listed as the final book but it s ending is left open or abrupt depending on your interpretation even though it s fairly obvious what will happen to LeoFirst book was a great serial killer thriller, second was a great actio [...]


  • This book is not even in the same stratosphere as the first two books Leo came across as a completely different character He was not the Leo I knew and loved from the other books I found this book extremely boring and had a very difficult time getting through it If you are interested in reading this trilogy I recommend that you stop after the second book Don t waste your time with this one.


  • This completes the trilogy series and all are enjoyable reads I have to say though that in my opinion the first book Child 44 outshines them all by far Here is ex KGB agent Leo, left alone in 1965 Russia while his family members have the opportunity to fly to NYC on a peace tour of sorts Things go horribly wrong for them, and after years of trying to get permission to go to the States to investigate for himself, Leo finally makes it First up, however, is a detour to Afghanistan as an advisor, wh [...]


  • 3.5 Stars I did enjoy this mostly but was disappointed in how things went This was not what I had hoped going into this reading I had hoped that we would follow Leo on his quest to exact revenge on those who would come after him or his family No such luck It was a round about, beat around the bush, mystery, that had nothing to do with Leo exacting revenge Political commentary, upheaval of regimes, and Leo getting older, very quickly We go from Leo in his prime to 15 years later Like WTF This isn [...]


  • More of a three and a half than a three, this was every bit as decently written as the previous two in the trilogy well researched, a realistic cast of characters you cared about partially due to getting to know them earlier in the series , action and pace I just felt it suffered a little by virtue of being the final in the trilogy an obligation to tie things up, the need to do the same things that worked in the previous books, the author seemingly faced with right, what did the USSR do in the 1 [...]


  • PROTAGONIST Leo Demidov, secret police agentSETTING Moscow, US, AfghanistanSERIES 3 of 3RATING 4.75AGENT 6 is the final installment in the Child 44 trilogy, which features Soviet secret police agent Leo Demidov It is a wonderful conclusion to a series that is epic in scope AGENT opens in 1951 in Moscow, where the young agent Leo is assigned the prestigious duty of escorting a black American singer, Jesse Austin, around Moscow Austin has espoused the Communist cause the Russian government hopes t [...]


  • Ova knjiga zaokru uje trilogiju i ba mi je ao to je gotova Glavni lik me pridobio odmah na prvo itanje u knjizi Dijete 44 , tada je Leo bio mlad, zgodan, u punoj snazi za genijalnog agenta U ovom zadnjem dijelu pod naslovom Agent 6 pratimo ivot glavnog lika i njegove obitelji kroz 16 godina nakon to mu je ena Raisa poginula Leo zavr i u Afganistanu i napokon u Americi gdje poku ava otkriti tko mu je zapravo ubio enu Na alost, odgovori mu nisu donjeli ni zadovolj tinu ni olak anje ni osobni mir O [...]



  • As see on Impression Blend2.5 of out 5 starsAs you can tell by my rating, I did not get along very well with Agent 6 It s hard to even explain the premise of the book without ruining a big portion of it, but I will do my best The book spans over a long period of time, starting with the pre evolved Leo in 1950 and going all the way to 1980s It also takes place in three different countries USSR, USA, and Afghanistan Leo in Agent 6 is a man struggling to adjust to family life by letting go of his o [...]


  • Agent 6 is the third book in the Child 44 trilogy by Tom Rob Smith We again encounter agent Leo Demidov and, as the book starts, he is an agent in the MGB, forerunner or the KGB The book begins in 1950 and progresses to the 1980 s Leo gets married and adopts two children His beloved wife is Raisa and his two adopted daughters are Elena and Zoya, both in their late teens The Soviet Regime is in full bloom and the cold war is a challenge to both the USSR and the US Each country has a large stake i [...]


  • The very first thing I notice from reading this novel, the third of a trilogy, is the tight concise writing that draws you in from the first sentence Tom Rob Smith has a no nonsense forward moving writing style without sacrificing characterization fact he takes you inside the heads of characters, of the Russian mindset of that time, the paranoia, distrust, anxiety, and the consequences of an entire society filled with these thought processes, and the propaganda that caused it.Tom Rob Smith is ma [...]


  • A therapist told me once she works in counseling field, she no longer reads novels Because she feels the fictional world is way less interested as the real world Everything comes from the real world She thought being a therapist is to read the world, but that is not true Novel, fictions come from real world, with a bit exaggeration or none, it displays you a far rich picture of the entire planet we are inhabiting in Novel never dies Reading Tom Rob Smith s novel is like taking a zigzag meander [...]



  • I didn t love the second book in this trilogy The Secret Speech , so I read this one only because I loved the first book Child 44 Unfortunately, this one is like The Secret Speech than Child 44 What made Child 44 such a great book was that the mystery thriller story was actually not the heart of the book the heart was the effect of Stalinism on people s psyches and relationships The mystery was just a way of getting at that idea The other two books have been much like typical suspense novels T [...]


  • With this final installment, Tom Rob Smith ties off his espionage trilogy involving the trials and tribulations of Russian State Security Officer Leo Demidov.The journey has been wide ranging and well told, taking Leo from his cushy Moscow berth as a favored and faithful agent to demotion and denouncement under Stalin s rigorous regime Demidov s decision to hunt down a serial killer the State refuses to admit exists may indeed restore him Book One Child 44 , but the resulting responsibilities ar [...]


  • What an amazing trilogy The second and third books were not as good as Child 44 but that doesn t mean they weren t good They were still amazing Which probably means that Child 44 ranks as one of my favorite books of all time Agent 6 follows the same style as it s predecessors with non stop action, adventure, twists, and fresh, snappy dialogue so I m not sure why it feels a notch lower than Child 44 and The Secret Speech Maybe it was the far fetched plot Or too much politics and ideology, not eno [...]
