Moscow, December 1991. Chaos reigns after the fall of Communism. Muscovites are used to queues and empty shelves, but now they have to cope with a dangerous power vacuum and a war between brutal Mafiya gangs for control of the city. So when a child's body is found beneath the ice of the Moscow River it attracts little attention to begin with. Then a second body is found. And a third. At the heart of the gathering storm is Red October, Russia's most famous vodka distillery. Alice Liddel, an American banker, has come to oversee its privatization, but she has to contend with the charismatic, ruthless Lev - distillery director and Mafiya boss. Lev's archenemy has vowed revenge, and it seems that the bizarre child killings might be a part of this. The last thing Lev needs is a determined young woman in the heart of his criminal empire.
