Reviews

The perfect Sunday afternoon read! * Scotland on Sunday * Fandorin is a debonair combo of Sherlock Holmes, D-Artagnan and most of the soulful heroes of Russian literature ... Andrew Bromfield's translation is key to maintaining the entertaining period pastiche * Sunday Telegraph * What Akunin's books have in common is charm, elegant writing, abundant wit - and Erast Fandorin ... He is a delightful character like no other in crime fiction * The Times * Fandorin delights ... a crime star * Independant * Akunin is an outstanding novelist ... Gloriously tongue-in-cheek but seriously edge-of-your-seat at the same time * Daily Express *
