THRILLERS

A literary mystery that’s perfect beach fare, despite its cold-sounding name. The Winter Queen is reminiscent of The Alienist by Caleb Carr. It’s beautifully written; it has a strong plot with a mystery at its core; and it smolders with atmosphere—here 19th-century Russia and London, rather than New York. Erast Fandorin, a young Russian police officer, investigates a supposed suicide and uncovers a conspiracy. Ruth Rendell calls Boris Akunin “the Russian Ian Fleming,” and Alan Furst says The Winter Queen is what might have resulted “if Tolstoy had sat down to write a murder mystery.”

THE WINTER QUEEN, by Boris Akunin (Random House Trade Paperbacks, 2004)

Probably not something I'd rush out to read, but might be worth giving a try some day.
