Paris, 1878: Eccentric antiquarian Lord Littleby and his ten servants are found murdered in Littleby s mansion on the rue de Grenelle, and a priceless Indian shawl is missing. Police commissioner Papa Gauche recovers only one piece of evidence from the crime scene: a golden key shaped like a whale. Gauche soon deduces that the key is in fact a ticket of passage for the " Leviathan, " a gigantic steamship soon to depart Southampton on its maiden voyage to Calcutta. The murderer must be among its passengers. In Cairo, the ship is boarded by a young Russian diplomat with a shock of white hair none other than Erast Fandorin, the celebrated detective of Boris Akunin s The Winter Queen. The sleuth joins forces with Gauche to determine which of ten unticketed passengers on the " Leviathan" is the rue de Grenelle killer. Tipping his hat to Agatha Christie, Akunin assembles a colorful cast of suspects including a secretive Japanese doctor, a professor who specializes in rare Indian artifacts, a pregnant Swiss woman, and an English aristocrat with an appetite for collecting Asian treasures all of whom are con? ned together until the crime is solved. As the Leviathan steams toward Calcutta, will Fandorin be able to out-investigate Gauche and discover who the killer is, even as the ship s passengers are murdered, one by one? Already an international sensation, Boris Akunin s latest page-turner transports the reader back to the glamorous, dangerous past in a richly atmospheric tale of suspense on the high seas.

Moscow, May 1876. What would cause a talented student from a wealthy family to shoot himself in front of a promenading public? Decadence and boredom, it is presumed. But young sleuth Erast Fandorin is not satisfied with the conclusion that this death is an open-and-shut case, nor with the preliminary detective work the precinct has done and for good reason: The bizarre and tragic suicide is soon connected to a clear case of murder, witnessed firsthand by Fandorin himself. Relying on his keen intuition, the eager detective plunges into an investigation that leads him across Europe, landing him at the center of a vast conspiracy with the deadliest of implications. "

" Pelagia's family likeness to Father Brown and Miss Marple is marked, and reading about her supplies a similarly decorous pleasure. " -" The Literary Review" In a remote Russian province in the late nineteenth century, Bishop Mitrofanii must deal with a family crisis. After learning that one of his great aunt's beloved and rare white bulldogs has been poisoned, the Orthodox bishop knows there is only one detective clever enough to investigate the murder: Sister Pelagia. The bespectacled, freckled Pelagia is lively, curious, extraordinarily clumsy, and persistent. At the estate in question, she finds a whole host of suspects, any one of whom might have benefited if the old lady (who changes her will at whim) had expired of grief at the pooch's demise. There's Pyotr, the matron's grandson, a nihilist with a grudge who has fallen for the maid; Stepan, the penniless caretaker, who has sacrificed his youth to the care of the estate; Miss Wrigley, a mysterious Englishwoman who has recently been named sole heiress to the fortune; Poggio, an opportunistic and freeloading "artistic" photographer; and, most intriguingly, Naina, the old lady's granddaughter, a girl so beautiful she could drive any man to do almost anything. As Pelagia bumbles and intuits her way to the heart of a mystery among people with faith only in greed and desire, she must bear in mind the words of Saint Paul: " Beware of dogs-and beware of evil-doers. " " Critics on both sides of the Atlantic have praised [ Akunin's] clever plots, vivid characters and wit. " -" Baltimore Sun " " Akunin's wonderful novels are always intricately webbed and plotted. " -" The Providence Journal"

Was bringt einen jungen begabten Studenten des Rechts aus bestem Hause dazu, sich in einem öffentlichen Park Moskaus inmitten von Spaziergängern zu erschießen? Für den Chef der zuständigen Kriminalabteilung der Moskauer Polizei ist der Fall klar: Eine fatale Mischung von Dekadenz, Langeweile und grundlegender Orientierungslosigkeit haben den armen Studiosus erst auf die schiefe Bahn und dann um den Verstand gebracht. Doch sein jüngster Untergebener, Erast Fandorin, eigentlich nur als Protokollant dem Bürodienst zugeteilt, gibt sich mit dieser Erklärung nicht zufrieden - zu Recht, denn der tragische Selbstmord bleibt kein Einzelfall.
Gesegnet mit einem wachen Verstand und einer gehörigen Portion Mut und Mutterwitz stellt Fandorin seine eigenen Ermittlungen an und stößt schon bald auf viele ungelöste Fragen, die einigermaßen beunruhigend sind. Warum haben alle Opfer ihr Vermögen einer dubiosen Stiftung für Waisenkinder hinterlassen? Und was hat die ebenso schöne wie geheimnisvolle Amalia alias Kleopatra damit zu tun, in deren Salon die männliche Jeunesse dorée Moskaus sich tödlichen Spielen hingibt? Fandorins waghalsige Untersuchungen bringen ihn nicht nur immer wieder in Gefahr, sie führen ihn schließlich quer durch Europa auf die Spur einer weltumfassenden Verschwörung.
Die Geschichte vom rotbäckigen Heißsporn Fandorin veröffentlichte der Moskauer Essayist und Übersetzer Gregori Tschchartischwili 1998 unter dem Namen Boris Akunin und feierte mit seinem ersten Kriminalroman einen überwältigenden Erfolg. Das liegt sicher auch daran, dass Akunin seinen Helden im Moskau des späten 19. Jahrhunderts ermitteln lässt, und seine Romane augenzwinkernd und schamlos nostalgisch den melodramatischen Stil eines Sherlock Holmes oder Eugène Sue imitieren. Doch ebenso unverkennbar sind die Anspielungen und Verweise auf Klassiker der russischen Literatur (allen voran Michail Bulgakow), deren ausgeprägten Hang zur Exzentrik, zur Melancholie und zur Fantastik Akunin immer wieder beschwört. Das ist Balsam nicht nur für die russische Seele und dabei nicht ohne Anspielungen auf zeitgenössische Probleme und Ereignisse - doch vor allem ist es äußerst unterhaltsam. < I>-Peter Schneck
