Claire Brennan has travelled to Moscow to fill in at work for her former boyfriend Ian, a journalist who is ill in the hospital. But she arrives to bleak news: Ian is dead. Instead of a hotel, her first stop is the hospital morgue.
When Claire learns that a considerable amount of money is missing from the office, and that Ian is believed to be behind the theft, she becomes obsessed with tracing the cash—and proving his innocence. But for every truth that she uncovers there is another lie in its place. She seems to have stumbled on a conspiracy.
Then the autopsy reveals that Ian's death was no accident. Everyone she has met in Moscow—Russian and American alike—seems to have their own agenda. Do any of them also have a motive for murder?

"Crosby's picture of Moscow is as bewildering and gripping as the post-war Vienna of The Third Man"
