DescriptionSnowdrops. That's what the Russians call them - the bodies that float up into the light in the thaw. Drunks, most of them, and homeless people who just give up and lie down into the whiteness, and murder victims hidden in the drifts by their killers. Nick has a confession. When he worked as a high-flying British lawyer in Moscow, he was seduced by Masha, an enigmatic woman who led him through her city: the electric nightclubs and intimate dachas, the human kindnesses and state-wide corruption. Yet as Nick fell for Masha, he found that he fell away from himself; he knew that she was dangerous, but life in Russia was addictive, and it was too easy to bury secrets - and corpses - in the winter snows...

Reviews for Snowdrops
. by Leigh
I bought this plodding attempt to craft a thriller on the basis of being on the shortlist for the Man Booker. After reading this, I'm forced to agree with the critics who say that the prize is being 'dumbed' down. If this is the debut of 2011, it must have been a pretty thin field. Various bells and whistles are dropped into the text to alert you to 'something thrilling is coming up' - "I hadn't done anything to be ashamed of, had I? Anything you could hold against me? Not really. Not yet." One review compares the book to 'like Graham Greene on steroids'. I'm afraid that Miller is suburbs away from being in the same street as Greene. by Greg Cooke
