Description
This third art crime thriller from Thomas Swan pits Scotland Yard detective Jack Oxby against Russian mobsters in pursuit of a priceless Fabergé egg that disappeared before the onset of the Russian Revolution. A world-renowned art collector challenges Oxby to locate the jeweled egg that the "mad monk" Grigori Rasputin commissioned as a gift for the Tsarina Alexandra, which disappeared on the night of Rasputin's assassination. Following a trail from England to New York to St. Petersburg, Oxby uncovers the history of an object shrouded in almost a century of scandal, betrayal, and murder—a trail that seems to have left all who have pursued it dead in its wake.

"The pacing is quick and the action plentiful. Swan surrounds the low-key Oxby with a high-spirited cast of lowlifes, especially Galina, the Russian gun-for-hire, who knows more than one way to kill a cat. Swan's series strikes a comfortable balance between the more hard-boiled Lovejoy antique mysteries and Iain Pears' more literary art-historical crime novels."—Booklist
