It's a great mystery novel which keeps your interest. If you love novels taking place in other countries, this is a good one.

If you are a fan of the earlier Porfiry Petrovich novels you'll like Razor Wrapped in Silk. By this (the third in the series) novel, the reader is thoroughly invested in the relationship between Petrovich and Virginsky (his young associate). I'm on the 4th & final installment now. It would be possible to read this as a stand alone, but you will be short changing yourself. Read the series.

Complex, interesting, well written and accurate to historical setting. The main characters are engaging and well drawn. Links to literature and Russian culture add interest.
