She Lover Of Death Summary

She Lover Of Death: Erast Fandorin 8 by Boris Akunin

Still a persona non grata in Moscow, ostracised by the authorities and shamed by the very qualified success of his last mission, Fandorin is back in his most underground enquiry to date. There's been rising consternation in fin-de-siecle Moscow over a wave of suicides among the city's young bohemians. An intrepid newspaper reporter, Zhemailo, begins to uncover the truth behind the phenomenon - that the victims are linked by a secret society, the Lovers of Death. But Zhemailo is not the only investigator hot on the heels of these disciples of the occult. Little do they realise that the latest 'convert' to their secret society, assuming the alias of a Japanese prince, is none other than Erast Fandorin. But when a young and naive provincial woman, Masha Mironova, becomes embroiled in the society, and Zhemalio dies a mysterious death, Fandorin must do more than merely infiltrate and observe. Especially when the spin of the Russian roulette wheel decrees that our dashing hero be the next to die by his own hand. Can Fandorin fake his own demise, all while outwitting the cult's dastardly leader? Find out in this fascinating journey through the dark underbelly of the fin-de-siecle.

She Lover Of Death Reviews

"His characters are outrageous and thoroughly unbelievable. Fandorin is an impossibly heroic figure. The combination is irrestible." -- Marcel Berlins THE TIMES "self-indulgently enjoyable... (Akunin's) artfully constructed novel also nods in the direction of Arthur Conan Doyle" -- John Thornhill FINANCIAL TIMES "A special treat for Akunin's fans" -- Jessica Mann LITERARY REVIEW
