A talented young student from a wealthy family commits suicide in a public park. Set in Moscow in 1876, the inexperienced police detective Erast Fandorin investigates this seemingly open-and-shut case – and in doing so, uncovers a deadly terrorist conspiracy of worldwide proportions. A promising premise to Boris Akunin’s “The Winter Queen”! 🤩 I’m excited to dive into this historical detective fiction as my next reading adventure. Have you read any of the Fandorin Mysteries?
