'Reads like a thriller or even a spy novel...Walsh keeps you gripped' Rosamund Urwin Sunday Times
'A turbulent but ultimately inspiring tale. The :candour...is :rare and gripping' Matt Dickinson The TimeThe extraordinary inside story of the family at the centre of the Russian athletics doping scandal'More than one review has likened Walsh&rsquo:s book to a Cold War thriller the true story of the committed antidoping official who falls in love and marries a star 800m runner who turns out an admitted drugs cheat. The book is a journey through deception betrayal infidelity and an eventual escape from the country.''An extraordinary and unlikely romance: and :a remarkable tale not just of love but of courage....[Stepanov's] :persistence in becoming one of sport&rsquo:s most remarkable whistleblowers...is staggering given everything set against him. :When David Walsh the chief sports writer of :The Sunday Times set out to meet the Stepanovs for the first time he thought he was writing a doping story...but in :The Russian Affair he has ended up with so much more. :The extraordinary lurching relationship between Vitaly and Yuliya lies at the heart of a turbulent but ultimately inspiring tale. The candour with which they have allowed Walsh to tell their story is rare and gripping.''Vitaly Stepanov and Yuliya Stepanova are the doping tester and the drugtaking runner whose unlikely love for one another gives them the moral strength to act as whistleblowers.''What makes this account of Russia's statesponsored doping so utterly compelling is that at its heart it is a love story about the young couple who blew the lid on the scandal. It is a tale of the implausible complex and fractious relationship between Vitaly Stepanov and Yuliya Rusanova... The story reads like a fastpaced thriller... This masterful work is so much more than a story about drugs coverups and corruption... A beautiful record of a compelling and emotional journey.'
