5.0 out of 5 stars Quite fascinating thriller! 6 April 2014
By Darlene Cruz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Excellent! I enjoyed this book, so much detail description of the streets of New York and Russia. The cultures especially the Russian culture, I learned quite a bit. Jo got involved with her step father (Nikolai) turmoils of his past life in Russia which followed him to New York. Characters coming out of the wood work from poets, detectives, police, private investigators, vor-v-zakonye (thief-with-a-code-honor), sukas (Russians who break the code and serve in the military), musicians, ambulance chaser, arms dealer, priest, Russia's underworld. I could picture this story in my mind, reminded me of watching a spy thriller with intense Who Dunnit overtone. Jo traveled to Russia that took nerve of steel, getting shot at, thrown in Russia's prison, bribes, who can you trust? I could feel myself squeeze out a breath slowly when I reached a part in the book that made me squirm because of Jo's gumption and her air of, "jump in and find out" attitude. Here's a tender moment between Jo and Nikolai, "Look, we're both lucky to have a future. Let's not waste it reliving the past. That's the trouble with you Americans. You have no respect for history. There are things that can happen from which no country is exempt." That statement said it all!
5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed every page! 17 April 2017

This was one of those rare books that grabbed hold of me on page one and never let go. The New York details and the Russia details were scrumptious. The thriller theme was maintained consistently, and the people all acted in character from Private Investigator Jo through her stepfather Nikolai to the various thugs and non-thugs-turned-thugs in the New York and Russian settings.
Others have offered synopses of the plot so all I'll do is suggest that you hang on for a great ride!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rekindled... 11 Aug. 2012
By Daniel Quigley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When I explored the attic of my childhood home (built in 1920) shortly after moving in 1962, I discovered a box loaded with 1st edition Hardy Boys' books. Within those mysteries, I learned much more than simply understanding the words on a page. I found that through reading, I can create images in my mind, stir senses and educe emotions.

While reading The Last Matryoshka, I found myself so absorbed in the story and with Jo Epstein it reminded me of those early moments of discovering HOW to read. More than that, it rekindled my love of a good mystery.

Thank you Joyce Yarrow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare find, a fast read that made me think! 28 Mar. 2014
By Jane Isenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Jo Epstein's adventure kept me turning pages while trying, along with her, to solve the murder. I've never been to Russia and now I don't need to go because i went with Jo in this book. Jo goes from Manhattan to Moscow and all over the Russian countryside and even, in a way, back in time to teach us, painlessly, a little Russian history. This mystery is a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting and Beautifully Written 7 April 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
We follow P.I. Jo Epstein from the gritty, unglamorous side of New York to the brooding landscape of Russia on an almost impossible task to clear her mysterious and difficult stepfather of murder. This beautifully written, tense, Chandler-esque tale will have you immersed in no time and glad for it. Don't miss this book. There's enough depth to keep a book club discussion going for hours and enough appeal to make you wish someone would make it into a movie.
