“Extremely little is known about Ian Kharitonov. Born in Moscow during perestroika, he spent his early years in Southeast Asia. He rediscovered Russia as he earned an economics degree. After turning down diplomatic work in Sweden, he began his career as a thriller author. His debut novel, The Russian Renaissance, won the Grandmaster Award from the Clive Cussler Society, and has been translated into Spanish. He has traveled across Asia, Europe, Russia and the U.S., and is currently busy working on his next book.”
