Pekkala: He was the Romanovsâ most trusted investigator. Now heâs Stalinâs greatest fear.
He operates in the shadows of one of historyâs most notorious regimes. He seeks the truth in a nation where finding it can mean deathâor worse. His name his Inspector Pekkala, and this time heâs taking on a case with implications far deadlier than anything he can imagine: a shattering revelation that was never meant to be unearthed.
Its official name is T-34, and this massive and mysterious new weapon is being developed in total secrecy in the Russian countryside, a thirty-ton killing machine. Its inventor, Colonel Rolan Nagorski, is a rogue genius whose macabre death is considered an accident only by the innocent.
And Josef Stalin is no innocent. Suspecting assassins everywhere, he brings in his bestâif least obedientâdetective to solve a murder thatâs tantamount to treason. Answerable to no one, Pekkala has the dictatorâs permission to go anywhere and interrogate anyone. But in Soviet Russia thatâs easily a death sentence. The closer Pekkala gets to the answers, the more questions he uncoversâfirst and foremost, why is the stateâs most dreaded female operative, Commissar Major Lysenkova, investigating the case when sheâs only assigned to internal affairs?
Pekkala is on a collision course not only with the Soviet secret police but the USSRâs deepest military secrets. For what he is about to learn could put Stalin and his Communist state under for goodâand bury Pekkala with them.
Brilliantly researched and rivetingly plotted, Shadow Pass is a superb story of suspense in a series growing only richerâand with a detective getting only better.
