Six months ago, Lucas Davenport tackled his first case as
a statewide troubleshooter, and he thought that one was plenty strange—but that
was before the Russian got killed.
On the shore of Lake Superior, a man named Vladimir
Oleshev is found dead, three bullet holes in his head and heart. Though nobody
knows why he was killed, everybody—the local cops, the FBI, and the Russians
themselves—has a theory. When it turns out he had very high government
connections, it all hits the fan. A Russian cop flies in from Moscow, Davenport
flies in from Minneapolis, law enforcement and press types swarm the crime
scene, and in the middle of it all, there is another murder. Is there a connection
between the two? What is the Russian cop hiding from Davenport? Is she—yes, she—a
cop at all? Why was the man shot with fifty-year-old bullets?
Before he can find the answers, Davenport will have to follow a trail
back to another place and another time and battle the shadows he discovers
there—shadows that turn out to be both very real and very deadly.
