9780006510147: Dmitri and the Milk-Drinkers

First in an irresistible new series from the author of the acclaimed Mamur Zapt novels.

Russia in the 1890s, and a window of reform opens up in the oppressive Tsarist legal regime. Dmitri Kameron, a young lawyer of Scottish-Russian descent, is just the man to jump through it – but not before he has dealt with the mysterious disappearance of Anna Semeonova, a beautiful and well-connected young woman who, bizarrely, looks as if she has been shipped off by mistake to Siberia. Is this a bureaucratic bungle of enormous proportions, or something more calculated?

Dmitri reluctantly embarks on a journey to the furthest outposts of Russia, only to find his search for Anna becoming horribly complicated. He begins to suspect a sinister cover-up – but of what? To unearth the truth in the labyrinthine world of Russian officialdom is a tough task for even the most resourceful of men and Dmitri is forced to make some strange allies, not least among them the redoubtable Milk-Drinkers.

Dmitri Kameron, a young lawyer of Scottish-Russian descent, is just the man to jump through it – but not before he has dealt with the mysterious disappearance of Anna Semeonova, a beautiful and well-connected young woman who, bizarrely, looks as if she has been shipped off by mistake to Siberia, in one of the prison wagons. Is this a bureaucratic bungle of enormous proportions or something more calculated?

Dmitri is the one elected to find out. He reluctantly embarks on a journey to the furthest outposts of Russia only to find his search for Anna becoming horribly complicated. He begins to suspect a sinister cover-up – but of what? To unearth the truth in the labyrinthine world of Russian officialdom is a tough task for even the most resourceful of men and Dmitri is forced to make some strange allies, not least among them the redoubtable Milk-Drinkers.
