Kurzbeschreibung

An American journalist is killed in Tajikistan while investigating the international heroin trade. Steve Conley, a Boston-based reporter from the same newspaper, is sent out to re-trace his assignment and determine why. Conley’s odyssey propels him through Paris, Prague and beyond, and along the way, against his better judgment, he becomes entwined with the beautiful, young widow of his dead colleague. What he’s least prepared to handle, though, is what he discovers at the endpoint…

5.0 von 5 Sternen Murder, intrigue, and geo-politics...An exceptional international thriller! 12. August 2015
Von Sean R. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Alone, on the side of a road in Tajikistan, a renowned reporter draws his last breath – bullet wounds drain his remaining life-force while his mind races, trying to piece together what went wrong. Had he gone too far?

His breath fades and Peter Bradford is no more. But he’s left behind a legacy: a maelstrom of unanswered questions and lingering doubts.

While reporting on the infamous heroin trade in Central Asia, Bradford had been tiptoeing through a tangled web of governmental intrigue, rampant kleptocracy, and tempestuous geo-political issues. Did he get in over his head?

Halfway around the world his newspaper colleagues are shocked and confused. What led to Peter Bradford’s senseless death?

His wife Claire wants answers…she wants the truth.

And now Steve Conley, a fellow reporter, is thrust in to the middle of the action, sent overseas to retrace Bradford’s steps and get answers regarding his death.
And we too, thanks to author Eric Almeida’s adept storytelling, are swept along with Conley and the unfolding story, around the world, weaving through a superb cast of characters and locales, rapt by the unraveling puzzle.

The author quickly constructs a perplexing yet provocative central conflict that will engage anyone – who can resist a good murder mystery? But this story goes much deeper than that. The ripples of Bradford’s death affect a whole lot more than his closest relatives and colleagues – they disturb the status quo of governmental relations and force other interests into the mix. The conflict has many layers and facets that, as the story progresses, become more and more intertwined. Reading this novel is much like solving a Rubik’s cube – constantly rearranging the pieces and putting them together in new ways, trying to come up with an answer.

Each chapter transports the reader from one character to the next in a constant flow, seamlessly progressing the narrative forward and elegantly maneuvering through situations and setups. The characters are both compelling and complex, and in the end the author delivers satisfying outcomes to their personal arcs. And just as much as the characters, the diverse locations visited in this novel leap off the page and envelop the reader – real world cities and destinations depicted in this novel are done so with great skill and affection. Many times while reading this I was completely transported back to my travels in Europe.

Don’t expect non-stop action. Instead, read Live From Moscow for the thrill of figuring out an intricate mystery as the characters do and sharing in their adventures across the globe. If you’re looking for your next page-turner, this is it!

4.0 von 5 Sternen An overall rewarding read for the thriler-lover. 21. März 2013
Von Annie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Take a generous portion of political drama, a whirlwind of international travel, a heap of suspense, and a pinch of sexual tension, and you have Eric Almeida's Live From Moscow. That's a pretty tempting recipe if you ask me.

It is important to first point out that Live From Moscow is not for the slow-paced reader; Almeida throws us right into the heat of things in the very first chapter, when we are faced with the death of protagonist, Claire's, husband. Throughout the novel, the storyline's pace never decelerates. Though I don't want to give away any key details, I found this aspect of the plot to be at times tiring and somewhat confusing. If you are capable of keeping pace, however, by all means don't hesitate to give this book a read.

Admittedly, I was at first rather anxious when I started to read this novel. I was unsure if my lack of knowledge regarding international politics would hinder my overall reading experience. Luckily, it most definitely served as no impediment in the comprehension of the story at hand. So if, like me, you are inexperienced in the ways of foreign and domestic policy, don't be intimidated. Almeida does a great job when it comes to keeping the formal terminology and international references at a comfortable level.

I always find it rather insulting when authors somehow see the need to flaunt their knowledge of a subject matter by trying to incorporate as many outlandish terms and phrases as possible. Therefore, I was extremely pleased with Almeida's appropriate (and tactful) portrayal of foreign affairs. Instead of feeling like I was in a history class, it felt more like I was watching the newly released spy-thriller at my town's local movie theater. It truly made for an enjoyable read.

Ultimately, Almeida's novel delivers on all fronts of the "thriller" genre. I found Almeida's ability to strike a keen balance between suspense and character development specifically impressive. There really is a little bit of everything (action, suspense, romance) in this book--a distinguishing factor from novels of the same genre. Most importantly, Live From Moscow has a sort of universal relevance that I am certain most readers will find quite appealing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read international thriller! 27. Februar 2013
Von Lucy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Eric Almeida's international thriller Live from Moscow is a scintillating combination of murder, suspense, and excitement with a hint of romance that is weaved into a captivating storyline. The tale begins in medias res with the murder of American journalist Peter Bradford, who was investigating the international heroin trade. Bradford's Parisian wife, Claire, was then left alone without answers to such a bizarre turn of events. Almeida brilliantly captures the odyssey of Bradford's fellow journalist, Steve Conley, who is sent to retrace precisely Bradford's tracks, traveling from Boston to Paris, Prague, Moscow, and beyond, and untangle the murder mystery. Along the way Conley finds himself increasingly attracted to Bradford's wife, Claire. Almeida beautifully paints the inner workings of Conley's mind via text, capturing the protagonist's conflict and torment not only in terms of Claire, but also in relation to the conspiracy he unearths during his travels. Such a conspiracy would destroy Bradford's reputation. Thus, Conley, holding the fate of Bradford's memory in his very hands, is forced to make onerous decisions. Almeida does a good job portraying his characters in a relatable light. In turn, many of his characters demand sympathy and compassion from the reader. While Almeida spends a significant amount of time unraveling the plot, I appreciated his equal focus on character development and growth throughout the course of the novel - a facet of writing often lost in many international thrillers. Overall, Almeida's Live from Moscow is a must read packed full of thrills and suspense that will leave any reader on the edge of his or her seat.

5.0 von 5 Sternen International Thriller, Must Read 13. Juli 2011
Von Mihir Shah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Eric Almeida's Live from Moscow is an entertaining thriller packed with mystery, politics, sex, and drugs--all set before a backdrop of international intrigue. Almeida fuses his reservoir of career experiences--working as a newspaper reporter and in international business--to worthwhile effect, with a style that is engaging and flows unhindered by superfluous characters. His protagonists, Claire Bradford and Steve Conley, develop multi-dimensional personas through imaginative dialogue and a captivating storyline.

Doing credit to the journalism profession--in the hazardous terrain of Tajikstan--American journalist Peter Bradford is slain in the line of duty. Bradford's assignment was to investigate the international heroin trade. As a result, his wife Claire is left to fend for herself--no children, no stable job, and no family, aside from Peter.

In a bizarre turn of events, the bodyguards that shoot Bradford are themselves killed. Throughout the book, there is a feeling that "something is not adding up," building anticipation and suspense.

As a tribute to Peter Bradford's professional dedication, Arthur Gallagher, the Managing Editor, sends Steve Conley to re-enact of Peter's final assignment. More importantly, Conley's mission resurrects Claire from the abyss of despair and gives her life a new meaning, and a much needed purpose. From Prague to Moscow to Dushanbe, Conley encounters compelling and enigmatic characters, including high-ranked officials of several governments--and realizes that there is a major conspiracy in the works. Gradually, against his better reflexes, he also finds himself attracted to Claire, while unearthing facts that point unmistakably in the direction of danger.

Live from Moscow is a fascinating tale that melds the intrigue of a mystery novel with contemporary dilemmas that often plague foreign countries. This is an absolute must-read page- turner that delivers a bit of everything: romance, suspense, and thrill.
