"Vodka Neat"

New from Thomas Dunne/St. Martin's Minotaur: Vodka Neat by Anna Blundy.

About the book, from the publisher:

Her motto:
Courage without equal
Truth without bullshit
Vodka without tonic

"Faith Zanetti is everyone's favorite messed-up war correspondent."
- Sarah Weinman, Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind

Vodka Neat features Faith Zanetti, a war correspondent with plenty of libido, good looks, a great sense of humor, and a zest for life that never quits. She's the new Moscow correspondent for a leading newspaper--chosen for the job because she married a Russian when she was a teenager.

But the minute she steps on Russian soil, she is instantly arrested in connection with the murders, fifteen years before, of a couple from a neighboring apartment. She was drunk at the time, but surely not that drunk. In order to solve the mystery, what she needs to do is find the charming Russian black marketer she married as a nineteen-year-old. And when she finds him, her problems really begin.
