Captain Korolev comes to Paddington

The Twelfth Department, by William RyanAuthor William Ryan visited Paddington Library recently and gave a talk about his crime fiction, set in Moscow in the 1930s.

William has written three novels in the Alexei Korolev mysteries series, for which he did a great deal of research both in Moscow and on the internet to check valid details which he could put in his novels to make the background appear authentic.
