Product Description

Built in the twilight of the Tsarist state, Moscow’s Metropole Hotel is a poignant reminder of the decadence of the last regime. But today its corridors are musty, its rooms are dank, and now its restaurant is the scene of a quadruple murder. To keep the killings under wraps, the Kremlin hands the investigation over to famously discreet police investigator Porfiry Rostnikov. A terrorist is targeting foreigners to embarrass the Soviet state, and the killer will happily sacrifice any Russian who gets in the way.

Praise for the work of Stuart M. Kaminsky:

“The Ed McBain of Mother Russia.” —Kirkus Reviews“[Kaminksy] had an uncanny knack for summoning up the feel of cities and even lost eras, and doing so in a few details.” —Booklist

Stuart M. Kaminsky (1934–2009) was one of the most prolific crime fiction authors of the last four decades. In 1981’s Death of a Dissident, Kaminsky debuted Moscow police detective Porfiry Rostnikov, whose stories were praised for their accurate depiction of Soviet life. In all, Kaminsky wrote more than sixty novels.
