Special Assignments : Erast Fandorin 5 Paperback

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Boris Akunin's well-loved, inimitable hero faces two very different adversaries: one, a deft, comedic swindler and master of disguise, whose machinations send ripples spreading through the carefully maintained calm of Moscow in 1886.

The other is a brutal serial killer, driven by an insane, maniacal obsession, who strikes terror into the heart of the Moscow slums in 1889 - and who may have more in common with London's own Jack the Ripper than simply a taste for women of easy virtue.

Review by

Two excellent additions to the Fandorin mysteries, both seem like full length tales as they pack a lot of detail in. Nice touch with the connection with Jack the Ripper as well.
