This novel is the second in a trilogy involving the character of inspector Constantin Vadim James s first novel Monstrum is one of my favourite all time murder mystery novels I was therefore very interested to read the seuel and revisit all the old characters This time the story takes place in Murmansk where Vadim is once again in over his head as he hunts down a ruthless sex killer who has abducted his wife Natalya I was sorry that we didn t learn that much about Natalya and I was even slightly shocked to find that she is killed off in the story but interested that the author was not afraid to kill off one of his main characters so soon I would have liked focus on one female lead and somehow James s leading ladies although beautiful intelligent provocative and never without a sense of vulnerability all seem to blend together Abby seems just like a watered down version of Julia in the first novel Once again however the unusually handsome Vadim is not in danger of being alone for long as he seems to attract beautiful women wherever he goes I mean honestly the guy s a full blown alcoholic and you don t have to remind us of that fact in every paragraph James with little confidence in his own abilities but he attracts the ladies with little or no effort He s a strange character I love him and hate him He succeeds at being heroic and pathetic at the same time I liked the return of Roy Rolkin the guy s a real rogue and I think he and Vadim share an interesting and dynamic friendship The writing flows and James is good at building up suspense I really like the alternative future of post Civil War Russia and all that but after Natalya s death the story seems to lag in limbo and then stops and starts all the way to the finish And when it all comes down to it the The Fortune Teller is just a rehashed version of the Monstrum storyline I can tell James knows his Russian history though and his descriptions of the Russian people and their mentality are interesting and enlightening but the whole visiting the fortune teller for advice was pretty nonsense and was definitely one of those times when I was seriously uestioning Vadim s sanity The end was pretty bland as well James tries to have too many twists and turns and there are too many talking head moments you know the whole well let me explain it to you or here s how it happened and the whole not remembering that he had sex with Abby earlier in the story made me just want to kick Vadim in the nuts But I don t really care I like Vadim despite and maybe because of all his faults and I will read the last of the novels in the series entitled Vadim because I want to see what happens to the characters
