The State Counsellor Summary

The reactionary General Khrapov, newly appointed governor-general of Siberia and soon-to-be minister of the interior, is murdered in his official train carriage on the way from St Petersburg to Moscow.

A knife, bearing the initials "CG", is thrust up to the hilt in the victim's chest, and State Counsellor Fandorin is allegedly seen fleeing the crime.

But all is not quite as it seems. Someone is intent on framing Fandorin - he must discover who they are and find out who is really responsible for the murder.

    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.
