A Lucas Davenport thriller by internationally bestselling novelist John Sandford.
Theories abound when a Russian gets himself killed on the shore of Lake Superior - not just killed, but shot with fifty-year-old bullets. And his identity remains a secret: his personal papers say one thing; the FBI thinks something else entirely -- ex-KGB.
Whoever he is, the dead man had very high government connections, so Lucas Davenport gets the call to investigate. Well, Lucas and a mysterious Russian cop with secrets all her own. Together, they'll follow a trail back to another place and another time, and battle the shadows they discover there... shadows that turn out to be both very real and very deadly. Because someone with an unknowable agenda and a very old grudge has every reason to want the dead Russian to remain unidentified... and will do whatever it takes to keep Lucas and his new partner from revealing the truth of their hidden prey.
