Gritty Russian noir, a bitter and tangled thriller like noone writes any more. Even those who have seen the film should pull up a loaf of black bread and some pepper vodka, and settle in to a highly enjoyable read.

This dark police procedural crime thriller is set in the Soviet Union during the early 1980's.

A compelling mystery that grabs you from the opening scene of three faceless bodies hidden in the snow of one of Moscow's popular parks. The writing is brilliant. A must read!

A solid mystery novel that had me hooked. I'm now into the whole series and can't wait for the latest release in 2013.
