I'm supposed to be preparing for meetings tomorrow, but I made the mistake of starting to read your novella. It was like eating potato chips on an empty stomach. I couldn't stop reading until I finished. Beautifully written (which I would expect), suspenseful, but also informative. It all ties together at the end as a commentary on Russian culture. Thanks for writing this.
Brilliantly represents the main tone of the trial and the Soviet court system at that time.
All the best with your story, which I consider great.
THE STORY IS GREAT! Marina Osipova
