After reading Monstrum, I was determined to hunt down more books by Donald James, and this was the next one I found. It continues the story of Constantine Vadim, the harried Russian police inspector, who is now searching for his kidnapped wife. I love it, if anything, more than Monstrum -- the story is intricate and never leads where you expect it to. The character of Vadim is very sympathetic, and I'm eager to read more about him. I only wish James's books were easier to find! I'm surprised they're not in print, they are so good. ( )
