Disillusioned with the workings of Moscow's Prosecution Service, Arkady Renko is on the brink of resigning when he's drawn into a strange new case.
The latest thriller by the author of Gorky Park is set in Putin's Moscow where three stations meet.
As a train pulls into Yaroslavl Station, a teenage girl wakes to find her baby has been taken. Meanwhile Arkady's vodka loving friend, detective Victor Orlov, is called to a workers' trailer where a prostitute has been found dead without a mark on her. With the local police keen to dismiss the death as an overdose, Renko's curiosity is aroused.
