Publisher's 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.


What the Critics Say

"All in all, a delicious confection." (Evening Standard)
"Lively characters and a sinuous plot amply explain why Akunin's Fandorin thrillers have sold in their millions." (Financial Times)

Narrator limits story

I have listened to several Fandorin novels previously, all with a different reader. I really like the stories, but find that this reader made it more difficult to enjoy and follow. Specifically, the narration is always on the same voice and time, frequently making it difficult to know quick character is speaking and frequently all of the characters sound as though they are showing
speaking in a flippant manner.
