Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stuart M. Kaminsky unleashes Moscow Police Inspector Porfiry Rostnikov in this Edgar Allan Poe Award-Winning mystery series, the first to be published by Mysterious Press.

When high-powered Mafia killers are themselves found murdered — naked and shot in locations spanning the Moscow River to the grandest pools atop the finest Moscow hotels — Inspector Rostnikov trails the scent. While clues lead the police seemingly nowhere, the Mafia itself believes the men are victims of a new gang war. Meanwhile, undercover cops Sasha Tkach and Elena Timofeyeva are ordered by the new Moscow police director, Yakov, to investigate the illegal dog fights that are plaguing the city. But why is Yakov spending so much time worrying about these dogs when there is a murderer loose? Elena's suspicionsare heightened in Moscow's grandest old hotel, the Metropole, whenshe is savagely attacked in the elevator by a pit bull released by Mafiosi who've realized she's a spy.

Synopsis:

Moscow Police Inspector Porfiry Rostnikov returns in another book in the Edgar Award-winning series--this time putting himself in league with members of the Russian Mafia, who feel that the murders of two of their own are related to new gang wars.
