Description

Boris Akunin's well-loved, inimitable hero faces two very different adversaries: one, a deft, comedic swindler and master of disguise, whose machinations send ripples spreading through the carefully maintained calm of Moscow in 1886. The other is a brutal serial killer, driven by an insane, maniacal obsession, who strikes terror into the heart of the Moscow slums in 1889 - and who may have more in common with London's own Jack the Ripper than simply a taste for women of easy virtue.show more

Review quote

Hugely entertaining, cunningly plotted detective novels ... clever, witty, wry page-turners to be commended to anyone with a taste for crime fiction * Daily Telegraph * Intricate, incredible, pleasurable * Literary Review * Extraordinarily readable, full of incident and excitement, swift-moving and told with a sparkling light-heartedness which is impossible to resist * Evening Standard * Immensely readable ... the beguiling, super-brainy, sexy, unpredictable Fandorin is a creation like no other in crime fiction * The Times *show more
