Dashing hero Erast Fandorin returns for another intriguing Russian crime caper, from the bestselling author of THE WINTER QUEEN.

General Khrapov, newly appointed Governor-General of Siberia and soon-to-be Minister of the Interior, is murdered in his official saloon carriage on his way from St Petersburg to Moscow.

The killer, disguised as Fandorin, leaves a knife thrust up to the hilt in his victim's chest and escapes through the window of the carriage. Can Fandorin escape suspicion?

A battle of wills and ideals, revolutionaries and traditionalists and good versus evil.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Akunin is an outstanding novelist ... Gloriously tongue-in-cheek but seriously edge-of-your-seat at the same time * Daily Express *
Fandorin delights ... a crime star * Independant *
What Akunin's books have in common is charm, elegant writing, abundant wit - and Erast Fandorin ... He is a delightful character like no other in crime fiction * The Times *
Fandorin is a debonair combo of Sherlock Holmes, D-Artagnan and most of the soulful heroes of Russian literature ... Andrew Bromfield's translation is key to maintaining the entertaining period pastiche * Sunday Telegraph *
The perfect Sunday afternoon read! * Scotland on Sunday *
