9781880100813: Murder at the Dacha

Senior Lieutenant Pavel Matyushkin has a problem. Several, actually. Not the least of them is the fact that a powerful Soviet boss has been murdered, and Matyushkin’s surly commander has given him an ultimatum to close the case quickly. Then there is the KGB colonel who seems a bit too interested in the course of Matyushkin’s investigation... and Pavel’s womanizing office mate, who gets involved with a subject of the case... and a series of petty burglaries that defy resolution... and of course Pavel’s complicated love interest, who is as prickly as she is perceptive... Alexei Bayer’s debut novel, set in 1960s Moscow, peels back the layers of late Soviet life to offer a vivid, gripping tale of deception, greed, murder, and a simple detective just trying to do his job.

About the Author:

Alexei Bayer is a New York-based author, translator and, by economic necessity, an economist. He writes in English and in Russian, his native tongue, and translates into both languages. His short stories have been published in New England Review, Kenyon Review, and Chtenia. Murder at the Dacha is also being published in Russian, in Russia, in 2013.

Review:

"Bayer tells a taut, gritty tale that gives a fresh and revealing insight into the Soviet Union of the Khrushchev years. Not only that, but in Pavel Matyushkin, his tough and self-confident hero, he has developed a great detective that leaves readers wanting more. Now." – William Ryan, author of "The Holy Thief," "The Darkening Field," and "The Twelfth Department."
