St Petersburg, 1917- the capital of the glittering empire of the Tsars and a city on the brink of revolution where the jackals of the secret police intrigue for their own survival as their aristocratic masters indulge in one last, desperate round of hedonism. For Sandro Ruzsky, chief investigator of the city police, even this decaying world provides the opportunity for a new beginning. Banished to Siberia for four years for pursuing a case his superiors would rather he'd quietly buried, Ruzsky finds himself investigating the murders of a young couple out on the ice of the frozen river Neva. In a city at war with itself, and pitted against a ruthless murderer who relishes his own past as he fights to save everything he cares for, before the world into which he was born goes up in flames.
