Summary

The latest book in the internationally best-selling Erast Fandorin Mysteries series 

Crimea, 1914.  

When the Tzar's head of security is assassinated, Erast Fandorin is called to investigate: the killer has been overheard mentioning a 'black city' so Fandorin and his trusty companion, Masa, head to Baku, the burgeoning Russian capital of oil. 

But from the moment they arrive in the city - a hotbed of corruption and greed by the Caspian Sea - they realise someone is watching their every move, and they will stop at nothing to derail their investigation.  

Having suffered a brutal attack and with Masa's life hanging by a thread, Fandorin is forced to rely on the help of an unexpected new ally, and he begins to suspect the plot might be part of something larger - and much more sinister.  

With war brewing in the Balkans, a Bolsheviks strike threatening the nation's oil supply and Europe's empires struggling to contain the threat of revolution, Fandorin must try to solve his most difficult case yet - before time runs out. 

An explosive, edge-of-your-seat novel, filled with intrigue, wit and Boris Akunin's unforgettable characters.
