About The Book

Three bodies found frozen in the snow. And the hunt for the killer begins…

A triple murder in Moscow’s famous Gorky Park amusement centre rocks the capital – three corpses found in the snow, so badly mutilated that their identities can’t be verified.
 
Chief Investigator Arkady Renko from the Moscow police takes the case.
 
Renko is a brilliant investigator – dangerously so.
 
Now, to identify the victims and uncover the truth, he must battle the KGB, FBI and the police – and stay alive doing it….

'You'll be engrossed in the atmospheric setting and the complexity of Renko's pained character' Observer
'One of those writers that anyone who is serious about their craft views with respect bordering on awe' Val McDermid
