Description
It is 1882 in this fourth mystery with renowned diplomat and detective Erast Fandorin (following The Turkish Gambit), and the "Russian Sherlock Holmes" (Telegraph, London) has returned at last to Mother Russia after six years of foreign travel and adventure. In the Moscow hotel where he and his loyal, if impertinent, Japanese manservant Masa are staying, Fandorin's old war-hero friend General Michel Sobolev is found dead, supposedly of a heart attack. But Fandorin finds that a German cabaret singer is somehow involved, and he soon crosses paths with a mysterious assassin who may have tangled with him before.

"Akunin is wildly popular in his homeland, and deservedly so. His plots are intricate, with one story nesting inside the next, like matryoshka. And although some references may prove challenging to Americans, the wealth of period detail—about tactics in battles fought with cavalry and cannon, for example, and the gruesome outcomes—is impressive."—The New Yorker
