The Secret Speech
Leo carefully shut the door behind him. He couldn't fail at being a father. Let the homicide department close, let him be stripped of his privileges, there had to be a way of saving his family, nothing mattered more . . . THE SECRET SPEECH It is 1956. Three years earlier, MGB officer Leo Demidov put his life on the line to stop a killer. Now he strives to see justice done in the homicide department in Moscow he has been allowed to establish. Even more important is the life he is trying to build with his wife, Raisa, and their two adopted daughters, Zoya and Elena. But the dark legacy of his former career in the secret police cannot be forgotten so easily. It will send his past crashing into the present, catapult him from the Siberian Gulags into the Hungarian uprising . . . and, most of all, threaten the life of someone he loves.
