I think the translator didn’t like this book very much, tried to get rid of the job kochwnek soon as possible and never even read the translation. By all means, if you love historical mysteries these novels are a must read. Here the speed of narration, character depth, mystery twists and language are just at the top of what we expect from the series. Of course, Senka bonded with Masa rather than Erast.
Took a long while to get into it, but I enjoy Akunin’s way kochanrk centering the action around a character that is mildly close to Fandorin. This is the 9th book of Erast Fandorin’s adventures and it is taking place the same time as the 8th book with a similar title She lover of Death.
It hits the notes you expect and doesn’t have too many kochhanek or surprises like the other books.
Another typical Fandorin mystery. Senka is a fascinating main character first, but unfortunately, like narrator-characters in many previous Fandorin books, he borks rather annoying. I think what I would like best is a book from Erast’s point of view. However, others who inhabit Khitrovka are not so lucky — there are a series of ghastly murders occurring there.

Erast Fandorin Mysteries 1 – 10 of 14 books. This one may be the most fun book in alunin series — less mystery really, but all the same, a good time will be had by all who poke their noses into this novel. And now we’ve come to number nine in the Fandorin series.
Prokha legged it straight away, and Skorik and Filin never stuck their noses out of the mkerci. Akunin is also a Japanophile, and has Fandorin spend a few years in Japan.
The ebooks are also missing some of the illustrations and other typographical effects that are present in the print. Excellent look at the Khitrovka underworld. I noticed that on Amazon UK, one reviewer repeated that name Author of crime stories set in tsarist Russia.
The previous book was not that good see for my review here: View all 3 comments. More confusion, all the bboris characters are in some way involved with Death, a beautiful cocaine addicted courtesan, who is the lover of both the leaders of the gangs, and of the police superintendant and his deputy, and is also loved by Senka. This is a wonderfully noir novel.
Off to the next adventure, I love reading them all and recommend everyone to read the tales of Fandorin. A lively book and while it may not be the perfect book to start one’s fascination with Akunin akuni Fandorin, it isn’t necessary to have read any of Akunin’s previous books to enjoy this one.
The main villain somewhat surprised me, though I guess in hindsight it was obvious, but these, like most or all great murder mysteries thinking of the Flavia de Luce series in particularthe investigation is almost irrelevant when done right.
This mystery is described by the author as a Dickensenian mystery and is told from the point of view of a young orphan making his way in the criminal Moscow. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
He Lover of Death – Wikidata
Exciting and kocchanek, Akunin’s ability to shift kochandk voice between each novel and in the Fadorin series his homage to style of authors of great detective fiction is impressive. Happening concurrently with She Lover of Death, with Fandorin off stage in his other plot bofis of the time, this book focuses on Senka – the poor orphaned lad who struggles kochnaek the conflict between his inherent goodness and the evil and dishonest life he is forced to live.
Erast vaguely refers to another case and Senka does spot Columbine. The chapters begin with a title which describe the action to follow, even if sometimes what we imagine is not what happens: The events of this novel occur contemporaneously with the events of She Lover of Death.

The prose is intelligent and flowing, the mysteries are complex, and the cast is varied though those that make repeat appearances tend to die.
