Akunin ermittelt im Auftrag des Zaren. Moskau Herbst 1894: Die Krönung des letzten russischen Zaren Nikolai II. steht unmittelbar bevor. Aus diesem Anlaß kommt die hochherrschaftliche Verwandtschaft der Romanows nach Moskau.

Fandorin, der diesmal unmittelbar im Auftrag des Herrscherhauses ermittelt, stellt sein ganzes Können unter Beweis. Eine handlungsreiche und spannende Geschichte in höchsten adligen Kreisen Rußlands am Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts, als der Machtverfalls der Romanows bereits deutlich sichtbar wird, erzählt von ihrem Haushofmeister Gefeiert als "James Bond und Sherlock Holmes mit russischer Seele" (ARD- Kulturreport), trat Erast Fandorin auch seinen Siegeszug in Deutschland an. Der Gentleman-Detektiv brachte seinem Schöpfer Boris Akunin phänomenalen Erfolg und riesige Auflagen. "Boris Akunin ist der Meister der russischen Kriminalautoren. Ich habe jegen seiner Romane verschlungen." Wladimir Kaminer "Akunins Bücher bieten Unterhaltung ohne Reue: Liebe und Eifersucht, Mord und Totschlag, Doppelspiele und Weltverschwörungen." FAZ
