After a boozy regimental dinner, British army officer Judith King has a night of passionate, alcohol-fueled sex with charismatic, half-Russian intelligence officer Leo Bekov. Imagine her shock when, very early the next morning, she discovers Bekov's body, blindfolded, tied to a post outside the mess hall, and shot through the heart. MPs Max Rydal and Tom Black are assigned to the case and quickly conclude that since Berkov was only on a brief visit to the base when he died, his killer probably was someone from his past, and since his death was staged to look like an execution by a firing squad, the killer was likely from the military. Their interrogations of several possible suspects reveal that Bekov was not exactly the highly regarded hero his records indicate. An action-packed plot with Byzantine twists, skillful writing, colorful characters, and a surprise ending add up to a page-turner with panache. Emily Melton
