"Brilliant . . . enough enigmas within enigmas within enigmas to reel the mind."
-The New Yorker

A triple murder in a Moscow amusement center: three corpses found frozen in the snow, faces and fingers missing. Chief homicide investigator Arkady Renko is brilliant, sensitive, honest, and cynical about everything except his profession. To identify the victims and uncover the truth, he must battle the KGB, FBI, and the New York City police as he pursues a rich, ruthless, and well-connected American fur dealer. Meanwhile, Renko is falling in love with a beautiful, headstrong dissident for whom he may risk everything.

A compelling mystery that grabs you from the opening scene of three faceless bodies hidden in the snow of one of Moscow's popular parks. The writing is brilliant. A must read!
