Yes, I know, usually I try to present only books in their original language (be it French or English) but… well… I do not read Russian, and it would be a shame to miss this writer: Grigory Shalvovich Chkhartishvili (გრიგოლ შალვას ძე ჩხარტიშვილი), writing as Boris Akunin for Orion Books

The Adventures of Erast Fandorin(The Winter Queen – The Turkish Gambit – Murder on the Leviathan – The Death of Achilles – The Jack of Spades – …) Erast Fandorin is a young man working for the Criminal Investigation Department of the tsarist Russia, who will go far if he does not have too many political problems. As you follow his enquiries, you also discover a “painting” of Russia and other places around 1880, the everyday life, the important places, characters, and son on. And all through the book, the plots are gripping and clever, and the character really evolves for the best.
