Russian Roulette is a novel in the Alex Rider series, written by Anthony Horowitz.
It serves as a prequel or spin-off to the Alex Rider series, but it will mainly focus on the childhood of the assassin that appears in many of the books, Yassen Gregorovich.
When Yasha confronts the gangster again, he has broken jaw causing him to mispronounce his name.
Instead of Yasha the gangster thinks that he said "Yassen," a highly unusual name in Russia that means ash tree.
What I mean is, the first reference to Russian roulette is from an 1840 Russian novella, but all confirmed instances of someone actually playing Russian roulette date from well after that.
So it could have been something that was originally made up but later inspired other people to try it.
