Description
The "Russian Sherlock Holmes" (Telegraph, London) who starred in The Winter Queen and Murder on the Leviathan returns in this third mystery by Russian literary phenomenon Boris Akunin. In 1877, Russia is at war with the Ottoman Empire, and the brilliant Erast Fandorin has been sent to search the Russian army for a Turkish spy. He is followed by a young woman with revolutionary ideals, who has disguised herself as a boy to find her fiancé at the front. Her coldness toward Fandorin—a lackey of the throne, in her assessment—begins to change as she comes to respect his courage, his deductive powers, and his piercing gaze. "There is a hint of Gogol, more than a hint of Tolstoy, and a generous dollop of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle," assayed the Telegraph, who called Akunin "the most playful of writers."
