Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pekkala: He was the Romanovs' most trusted investigator. Now he's Stalin's greatest fear.

He operates in the shadows of one ofhistory's most notorious regimes. He seeks the truth in a nation where finding it can mean death--or worse. His name his Inspector Pekkala, and this time he's taking on a case with implicationsfar deadlier than anything he can imagine: a shattering revelation that was never meant to be unearthed.

Its official name is T-34, and this massive and mysterious new weapon is being developed in totalsecrecy in the Russian countryside, a thirty-ton killing machine. Its inventor, Colonel Rolan Nagorski, is a rogue genius whose macabre death is considered an accident only by the innocent.

And JosefStalin is no innocent. Suspecting assassins everywhere, he brings in his best--if least obedient--detective to solve a murder that's tantamount to treason. Answerable to no one, Pekkala has thedictator's permission to go anywhere and interrogate anyone. But in Soviet Russia that's easily a death sentence. The closer Pekkala gets to the answers, the more questions he uncovers--firstand foremost, why is the state's most dreaded female operative, Commissar Major Lysenkova, investigating the case when she's only assigned to internal affairs?

Pekkala is on acollision course not only with the Soviet secret police but the USSR's deepest military secrets. For what he is about to learn could put Stalin and his Communist state under for good--and bury Pekkalawith them.

Brilliantly researched and rivetingly plotted, Shadow Pass is a superb story of suspense in a series growing only richer--and with a detective getting onlybetter.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

In this fierce, intelligent follow-up to "Eye of the Red Tsar," Inspector Pekkala returns and finds himself enlisted by Stalin himself to look into the death of one of the Soviet Union's top military engineers. But finding the truth in the Soviet Union is never easy.
