In 1882, after six years of foreign travel and adventure, renowned diplomat and detective Erast Fandorin returns to Moscow in the heart of Mother Russia.

But Fandorin suspects an unnatural cause. His suspicions lead him to the boudoir of the beautiful singer—“not exactly a courtesan”—known as Wanda.

    " Best of the Fandorin series. "

    " Normally I am a huge fan of the international mysteries, but I could not get into this book at all. Maybe it was just the translation I had, I don't know, but it was reeeally dry. "

    " I really enjoyed this tale - Akunin is a comtemporary Russian author who has a good following in Europe. His character Fandorin is something of a Russian, 19th Century James Bond - a master of disguise that gets involved in all kinds of interesting adventures with a scruffy cast of characters that remind you of Dickens...... "

    " Erast Fandorin is a very cool candidate. I love to read his way around a mystery. This was one of my favourites of his... but I say that after each one I read. "
