    St Petersburg, 1917: A city on the brink of revolution. For Sandro Ruzsky, chief investigator of the city police, this decaying world provides an opportunity for a new beginning. Banished to Siberia for four years for daring to cross the Secret Police, Ruzsky now finds himself investigating the murders of a young couple out on the ice of the frozen river Neva. Pitted against a ruthless murderer, Ruzsky finds himself face-to-face with his past as he fights to save everything he cares for.

    Paul says: "Masterfully written, expertly narrated!"

    Overall

    I have experienced many fine reads during my almost two year membership at Audible, but none so expertly crafted by both author and narrator as The White Russian. Other titles have deserved full marks but Robert Powell and Tom Bradby so complement each other that the effect is not simply additive but explosively synergistic. The whole instead deserves a score of 20! The narrators skill is exceptional to the extreme and the author neither embellishes too much nor too little but holds the reigns tight on a ride that enthralls and surprises to the end. The book adeptly emerses one in the agony of the period and intimately involves one in the personal tragedy of the central character. I can only hope that author's and narrator's paths cross again in the not too distant future!
