The Lensky Connection


Russia, 1996.

In the run up to the Presidential election Major Valeri Grozky of the Federal Security Bureau (FSB) is fighting organised crime in St Petersburg, making his own stand against the drug gangs after the death of his older brother from a drug overdose. His fight puts him into an uneasy alliance with Natassja Petrovskaya, a journalist acquaintance determined to expose corruption.

Against his wishes, Grozky is selected for a Russian Military Intelligence (GRU) operation investigating an oligarch involved in an oil company privatisation fraud which an American Senate investigation will publicly expose. Unless the growing political scandal can be contained, it threatens to topple the Russian government.

Grozky is in a race against time to prove the oligarch’s guilt. As Grozky delves into the fraud, he discovers the trail leads outside Russia and dark forces are operating on both sides of the Atlantic. With the Russian election looming, he and Natassja are marked because they know too much. Grozky is forced to reassess his loyalties and confront the real enemy…

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and read it from cover to cover in a couple of days over Christmas! Looking forward to Conrad’s next one!

A gripping book from start to finish. Once you pick it up it is difficult to put down.

It was lovely to read something different- a unique intriguing plot, it kept me spellbound and opened my eyes to the complex business and politics wheelings and dealings in post communism Russia.

by Cathy Tombs

The Lensky Connection is an excellent and compelling story of crime, corruption and politics in Russia in the period preceding Yeltsin’s presidential election in 1996. The book exudes a feeling of the time, and the imaginary world Delacroix has created, along with his main character, a likeable Major Valeri Grozky, is very credible. Delacroix has clearly done his research into places, people and more. I loved this book which I found to be a compulsive read and would highly recommend it.
