Inhaltsangabe: He hunts in a landscape ravaged by war. In a country haunted by its past and a city built on tears, he leaves behind the disfigured bodies of young women. No one knows who he is or why he kills. But now the serial murderer they call the Monstrum is being pursued by a policeman who must find the truth: about his killer, his nation, himself--and the dark heart that beats within them all.
Rezension: Ace historian Donald James, who wrote the script for the excellent PBS series Russia's War and whose book The Fall of the Russian Empire is a fine guide to recent past events, projects his expertise into the near future to create a chaotic, completely believable landscape of terror and frustration in this memorable thriller. It's 2015, and Russia--racked by civil wars since the fall of the Yeltsin government and its short-lived liberal successors--is under the strong grip of leader Leonid Koba. A melancholy, alcoholic (are there any other kind?), provincial policeman named Vadim is shipped from Murmansk to a bombed-out district of Moscow, ostensibly to investigate the brutal murders of women credited to a demonlike killer called the Monstrum. But what the people in power really want from the increasingly desperate Vadim is something completely different--his resemblance to Koba and his connection to the woman who led the defeated rebels.
