Deep in the Russian countryside,
a thirty-ton killing machine known officially as T-34 is being developed in
total secrecy. Its inventor is a rogue genius whose macabre death is considered
an accident only by the innocent. Suspecting assassins everywhere, Stalin
brings in his best, if least obedient, detective to solve a murder that’s
tantamount to treason. Answerable to no one, Inspector Pekkala has the dictator’s
permission to go anywhere and interrogate anyone. But the closer Pekkala gets
to answers, the more questions he uncovers. First and foremost, why is the
state’s most dreaded female operative, Commissar Major Lysenkova, investigating
the case when she’s only assigned to internal affairs?
In the shadows of one of history’s
most notorious regimes, Pekkala is on a collision course with not only the
Soviet secret police but the USSR’s deadliest military secrets. For what he’s
about to unearth could put Stalin and his Communist state under for good, and
bury Pekkala with them.
