by Loren B. (Appleton, WI) political mystery
Actually this novel was less of a mystery and more political intrigue. I found it a little hard to follow, but the main character is deep and thoughtful-a different kind of man than what might be expected in Stalin's USSR.

In 1937 Russia, Captain Alexei Korolev is caught between his party loyalties and his sense of justice, while investigating the murder of an actress.
