Even better than I expected. Murder at the Dacha is a fast and fun read, yet the portrayal of working class life and upper-crust corruption in Khrushchev-era Moscow is not superficial. The author knows his world and gets the details right. Can't go wrong for any reader who loves an addictive mystery, cool characters, and a Moscow setting that for once avoids all the cliches.
