All of this is a backdrop to Kaminsky's 87th Precinct style mystery. Kaminsky hints at the influence by having Rostnikov carry around an Ed McBain novel as he pursues various leads.
The title refers to an apparent mental patient who interrupts Rostnikov's visit to his wife Sarah's hospital room, where she's recuperating from a brain tumor operation. The man is naked and ranting about devils invading the shoe factory where he works. Rostnikov decides to investigate. A second case deals with a woman complaining that her son is about to assassinate a Politburo member. A third has to do with the disappearance of Bus 43 and its driver Boris Trush.
All of these threads occur prior to the dissolution of the USSR, during the time of Gorbachev and glasnost. Any case involving the Politburo is dangerous territory for Rostnikov and crew. This is exacerbated when the reader realizes "The Washtub" is being tracked by the KGB.
I was so looking forward to another Rostnikov novel that I inadvertently read this one a second time. You'd think I would've remembered that title.
