The acclaimed author of The Gentle Axe returns with another atmospheric thriller starring investigator Porfiry Petrovich" Porfiry's second outing is entertaining and educative, thanks to the author's passion for his canvas."
Hailed with glowing reviews , R. N. Morris's The Gentle Axe borrowed Porfiry Petrovich of Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment to create a wholly new, hauntingly authentic novel of suspense. A Vengeful Longing, Petrovich's next outing, is even more engrossing. As the laconic investigator follows a trail that begins innocently with a box of chocolates, he is drawn deep into St. Petersburg's squalid heart. Aided by Morris's effortless prose, readers are immersed in the stifling world of nineteenth-century tsarist Russia and treated to an unforgettable rendering of a brutal time and place that will ensnare every fan of sophisticated historical fiction.
" Full marks to the author for bringing Petrovich back to life in this ambitious work that is a real pleasure to read."
