New York Times bestselling author.

Moscow lies deep under the snow, and Arkady Renko is on the trail of a suspect police officer, a former commando who served with glory in Chechnya. But proof of the man's corruption is elusive. Now, Renko's unpopular boss calls him to head up a delicate investigation - passengers riding the last metro of the night have reported seeing the ghost of Stalin waving to them from the platform edge... every night... at the same time. Meanwhile, Renko's adopted son has disappeared and his girlfriend has re-ignited an affair with the very police officer he's investigating.

Stalin's Ghost is more than an original and deeply humane thriller - it is a wonderful evocation of the new Russia where, too often, the troubles of the present erupt in murder and double-cross.

Good little page turner, well researched and with engaging characters. It suffers from the bane of its genre, i.e. too many implausible coincidences. Suspend your disbelief and enjoy the ride!
