Praise

Praise for Boris Akunin:

“[Akunin’s Erast Fandorin] novels feature a Slavic Sherlock Holmes who speaks Japanese and English, is skilled at martial arts and has lady-killer good looks….Millions of readers have been seduced by the books’ elegant style and classy, retro feel.”
The Wall Street Journal

“[Akunin is] the Russian Ian Fleming….[The Winter Queen] features abduction, villains, beautiful women and, of course, espionage….Akunin’s accomplished writing is a treat.”
—Ruth Rendell

“Akunin’s prose is clean and swift, pausing only to set a scene with a few well-chosen details before resuming the hairpin curves of the action. If Pushkin had tried his hand at detective ?ction, it might have turned out something like this.”
The New York Times Book Review

“A warning to readers: after ?nishing this novel you will need more novels featuring Erast Fandorin….Akunin succeeds in transporting us completely into nineteenth-century Russia, yet the novel is a de?nitively modern mystery.”
—Matthew Pearl, author of The Dante Club

“A tasty dish…There are secret panels, hidden tunnels, a false mustache, intercepted letters, gun?ghts, and a glamorous female villain….Akunin knows how to build suspense, but he also enjoys himself; he shows the reader a good time.”
The Boston Globe

“Marries old-fashioned manners to a nonstop array of plot twists to rival the best detective tales. The Winter Queen is an energetic hands-down winner.”
