    The White Russian A Novel of Paris (Book): Bennett, Vanora: "An enchanting, suspenseful novel of love, art, music, and family secrets set among the Russian émigré community of Paris in Evie, a rebellious young American, leaves New York in search of art and adventure in Jazz Age Paris, home to her long-estranged bohemian grandmother. "St. Petersburg, -- the glittering capital of the Tsarist empire and a city on the brink of revolution- where the jackals of the secret police maneuver for their own survival and their aristocratic masters indulge in one final moment of hedonism. "For Sandro Ruzsky, chief investigator of the St. Petersburg police department, this decaying world provides the opportunity for a new beginning.4/5(4).

    The White Russian Caper is the second in this series I have listened too. Again I was really happy with everything about it. The hero is a the epitome of the classic Hard-Boiled detective (with a soft gooey yolk where his wife is concerned). If you've read this and would like more fictionalised history about Russian conflicts, we also heartily recommend The Conductor by Sarah Quigley.
