Recalled to Washington and riding an editor?s desk, journalist Colin Burke itches to be back in Russia. A friend?s murder is hardly the cause he would have wished for, so it?s with a mix of guilt and eagerness that he picks up his reporter?s notebook again, and heads for St. Petersburg. Poking around the seedy, familiar corridors of Russian politics and police bureaucracy, Burke is in his element, but as the threads of the murder seem increasingly to lead to the Hermitage?one of the world?s great museums?he may be out of his depth. Someone seems to have been planning to steal some of the museum?s priceless paintings, but Burke knows nothing about art. Fumbling his way into instant expertise, he could have the story that will cap his career. But there?s a good chance that he?ll get capped instead.

The subject is too hot to discuss over the phone, but she wants Burke to publish the story. They arrange to meet in Washington, D.C., that night.
She never makes the meeting. And to find out why, Burke returns to Russia--where he had put in long, hard ye
