Erast Fandorin - 'A popular hero to equal Sherlock Holmes and James Bond' (The Times)' - returns in the penultimate installment of the hugely popular historical mystery series.

'A popular here to equal Sherlock Holmes and James Bond' The Times
An Erast Fandorin Mystery

Eliza Altairsky-Lointaine is the toast of Moscow society, a beautiful actress in an infamous theatre troupe.

Her love life is as colourful as the parts she plays. She is the estranged wife of a descendant of Genghis Khan. And her ex-husband has threatened to kill anyone who courts her.

He appears to be making good on his promise.

Fandorin is contacted by concerned friend - the widowed wife of Chekhov - who asks him to investigate an alarming incident involving Eliza and a viper. But when he watches Eliza on stage for the first time, he falls desperately in love . . .

Can he solve the case - and win over Eliza - without attracting the attentions of the murderer he is trying to find?
