She Lover of Death

By Boris Akunin

First published in Russian in 2001, She Lover of Death is Boris Akunin’s eighth Erast Fandorin mystery and the latest to be made readily available to stateside readers. In this gripping tale, Fandorin investigates a decadent society of subversive poets known as the Lovers of Death, who “conduct nightly seances to determine who shall be Death’s next lover.” The resulting rash of suicides shakes 19th-century Moscow to its core and draws the attention of the dashing detective, who must go undercover and move through the ranks of the secret society in order to try to prevent the next death.
