Review by

This book was part of World Book Night 2014. The hero Arkady Renko is a senior investigator in Moscow and he is left with a triple murder, when three corpses are discovered frozen in the snow ,with the victims unidentifiable. We are in 1977 Russia with echoes of the Cold War in the background as our hero tries to uncover the truth behind the killings. Enjoyable read.
