    Description
    A taut and shocking story of vengeance, bloodshed and love, set over 100 days of bitter Russian winter . . . from the UK bestselling author of 'Messiah'.

    Moscow, December 1991. Chaos reigns after the fall of communism. Muscovites face queues and empty shelves; now they must cope with a lethal power vacuum - and a war for control of the city between brutal mafiya gangs. So when a child's body is found beneath the ice of the Moscow River it attracts little attention to begin with. Then a second body is found. And a third.

    At the heart of the gathering storm is Red October, Russia's most famous vodka distillery. Alice Liddell, an American banker, has come to Moscow to oversee its privatisation - an unpopular move. Alice wants to get going, but faced with the charismatic, ruthless Lev - distiller director and head of one of the warring mafia gangs - a very difficult job is starting to look impossible.

    Lev's arch-enemy has vowed revenge on him and the bizarre child killings might be part of this. The last thing he needs is a determined young woman in his criminal empire. But will Lev and Alice be enemies or allies? And when the storm has passed, who will be left standing?
