Synopsis

"Chief Inspector Brett Nightingale and Sergeant Beddoes have been called to a gloomy flat off Islington High Street. An elderly woman-Princess Olga Karukhin, an emigrant of Civil War Russia-lies dead on the bed, and her trunk has been looted of its glittering treasure... Out in the festive chaos of the capital a colourful cast of suspects abound: the downtrodden grandson, a plutocratic jeweller, Bolsheviks with unfinished business? Beddoes and Nightingale have their work cut out in this tightly-paced, quirky and highly enjoyable jewel of the mystery genre"--.
