Eastland and his Finnish inspector continue to spin out a great yarn. The historical setting, in Stalin’s Russia just prior to WW2, is claustrophobic and immersed in an atmosphere of suspicion. As with the first book in the series, Pekkala’s flashbacks to the time of the Romanovs add a rich texture to his internal narrative. A good series to follow!
I enjoyed the book. The dialogue can be a little stilted, but the story is good.
book is also known as "shadow pass" and the real name of the author is Paul Watkins!
he has many other non series books that are good too.
"The Red Coffin is the sequel to The Eye of the Red Tsar, and it’s superb. If you missed the debut of Investigator Pekkala, once the Tsar’s most trusted agent and then the special investigator for Josef Stalin, you’ll want to run out and get the first book. That’s not to say Eastland doesn’t give enough back story to fill in the gaps, it’s just that they’re so tantalizing you’ll want more – and Eastland gives us much, much more."
