Product Description

At an icebound naval weather station in far Siberia, the young daughter of an exiled dies under suspicious circumstances. The high-ranking Commissar sent to investigate the mystery suffers a similar fate—murdered by an icicle thrust into his skull. Inspector Porfiry Rostnikov is dispatched to solve the Commissar's murder, with one strange caveat: he is not to investigate the girl's death, even if all the clues tell him that the two cases are linked. In a single, fateful day, Rostnikov will hear two confessions, watch someone die, conspire against the government, and nearly meet his own death. All under the watchful eye of the KGB—and someone much closer and infinitely more terrifying.

"Impressive...Kaminsky has staked a claim to a piece of the Russian turf ...He captures the Russian scene and character in rich detail." —The Washington Post Book World

"As always, Kaminsky provides a colorful, tightly written mystery (he doesn't waste a word) filled with twists, countertwists and a surprise ending that is plausible and clever." —Chicago Tribune
