by Edward Docx

Set in St. Petersburg, Docx’s novel offers a Dostoyevskian mix of rich prose, haunting scenery, well-buried secrets and engrossing characters. This is a great bedtime read, but beware, Docx offers a window on a gritty, dark St. Petersburg – not the one you would likely want to visit, except through fiction.

— Paul E. Richardson
