Erast returns to Moscow

  • Apr 26, 2006
After an absence of six years, Erast Fandorin returns to Moscow, and is immediately caught up in the death of his old friend from the Balkans, General Sobolev, the "Russian Achilles". Nothing appears to be the way it seems, and there are red herrings aplenty. The book is essentially in two parts, one concentrating on Fandorin, and the other giving the life story of the murderer of the general. Both parts are extremely interesting, and the ending is an action-packed group of pages. I look forward eagerly to each new Fandorin book, and knowing that there are still six more to be translated and published here makes me very happy!
