Book Description

It's the middle of a hot, dusty St Petersburg summer in the late 1860s. A doctor's wife and son die suddenly and the doctor is arrested, suspected of poisoning. But when further, apparently unconnected, murders occur, Porfiry Petrovich is forced to reassess his assumptions. Delving into the hidden, squalid heart of the city, he is brought face to face with incomprehensible horror and cruelty, in this vivid rendering of a brutal and stifling nineteenth-century St Petersburg.

Dark Palace by R. N. Morris Dark Palace, Paperback (October 2014)

April, 1914. The premiere of notorious Austrian director Konrad Waechter's new film is interrupted by the screams of a woman in the street outside. She has been viciously mutilated in a horrific act of violence which eerily echoes a macabre act of violence in Waechter's film. DI Silas Quinn and his team investigate.

Cleansing Flames by R. N. Morris Cleansing Flames, Paperback (May 2011)

It's Easter, 1872. Fires burn in St Petersburg, a prelude to the turmoil that shakes Russia a generation later. As the springtime thaw begins, a body rises to the surface of the Winter Canal. Following an anonymous tip-off, magistrate Porfiry Petrovich is drawn into an investigation of the radical intellectuals who fan the flames of revolution.

Razor Wrapped in Silk by R. N. Morris Razor Wrapped in Silk, Paperback (April 2010)

St Petersburg. 1870. A child factory worker is mysteriously abducted. A society beauty is sensationally murdered. The first is barely noticed by the authorities. The latter draws the full investigative might of St Petersburg's finest, led by magistrate Porfiry Petrovich.
