Moscow, May 1876. What would cause a talented student from a wealthy family to shoot himself in front of a promenading public? Decadence and boredom, it is presumed.

Great story full of events like suicide, murder etc. This book will make you wonder "who did this/who did that?" till the last page. B. Akunin did a good job in his first "Fandorin mystery".

Well done, but Akunin does not need an American to tell him that. Millions of Russians already know that Akunin (albeit a pen name) is heir to Pushkin, Chekov, Tolstoy, Bulgakov, and all the other Russki masters. Excellent translation, far from a trivial task to get sharp yet subtle Russian into sharp yet subtle English.

I read this book in one sitting I couldn't set it down it just kept twisting and turning. It has a very unexpected ending and I can not wait to read the next book in the series.
