Her motto:Courage without equalTruth without bullshitVodka 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.

Oxford graduate, single girl columnist, and former Moscow correspondent for The London Times, Anna Blundy has lived and worked in Russia on many occasions doing things from singing in a blues band in the early 1990s and making coffee at the ABC News bureau to interviewing Mikhail Gorbachev live in Russian on Radio Svoboda in 1998. Anna is a critically acclaimed novelist whose first book, Every Time We Say Goodbye, told the story of her foreign correspondent father who was killed by a sniper in El Salvador in 1989. She now lives between London and Tuscany and, in her time, she has drunk a LOT of vodka, neat. Her next Faith Zanetti thriller is coming soon from Thomas Dunne Books / St. Martin's Minotaur.

"Buoyant, smart, racy, and compelling. Anna Blundy has written a page-turner as intoxicating as Smirnoff."- Tina Brown "A mesmerizing thriller with a sexy and sharp heroine...Anna Blundy has vividly captured today's Moscow and its electric undercurrents."- Walter Isaacson "A drop of the hard stuff, administered tenderly by someone who's obviously been there."- Christopher Hitchens "Sharp and hilarious...it's impossible not to fall for Faith Zanetti, the kind of girl to make your mother shudder and your father drool. She's Bridget Jones on rocket fuel-strength vodka, but she's also cool, competent, and very good at getting herself out of calamitous situations. Above all, she has a great sense of humor--and this is where journalist Anna Blundy really shines, because it requires nifty footwork on the part of a writer to produce a funny thriller without diluting the thrills and trivializing serious issues."- The Guardian (UK) "Entertaining and original...what happens when chick lit meets the fallout from the Cold War. Vodka Neat is great fun...a witty page-turner which keeps you laughing and guessing, right to the end."- Sunday Express (UK)
