Publisher's Summary

The first in a gripping series of crime novels set in the seamier side of St Petersburg, featuring sharp, yet compromised policewoman, Captain Natalya Ivanova. 

Student Zena Dahl, the daughter of a Swedish millionaire, has gone missing in St Petersburg (or Piter as the city is colloquially known) after a night out with a friend. 

Captain Natalya Ivanova is assigned the case, making a change for Natalya from her usual fare of domestic violence work, but, because of the family’s wealth, there’s pressure for a quick result. As she investigates she discovers that the case is not as straightforward as it may seem.

Dark, violent and insightful, Motherland twists and turns to a satisfyingly dramatic conclusion.

narrator couldn't be better. content excellent.

the characters and flow very good. very little word wastage. the narrator complements the story so well. the writing s almost perfectly executed. although a simple story, it is very satisfying and eagerly devoured, like a simple steak meal perfectly executed. I have not even finished this book, ch 21 yet offer this review. Early on in the book, I became attached to the main characters. And now heavily invested in them, I'm looking forward to being with them in future books. As long as the narration doesn't let us down. I felt the same way about Graham Masterton's Katie Maguire series, but one narrator was for me intolerable.
