In Stalin's ear Russia, people disappear all the time. They either move to the larger city to find work, or simple disappear ( One way goverment retirement plan). In this time people are being killed in the percullier way. It becomes obvious to one agent that there is a murder ( now we would him a serial killer) on the loose. Unfortunately in the utopia of Russia - there are no crimes of this degree.

Based on a real story of a serial killer in Russia this is a great mystery and a facinating look at life in the Soviet Union. A cop stalks a killer in a society whose government will not admit murders even happen. A former hero of the motherland who completely bought into the Soviet plan and member of the KGB Leo Demidov finds his belief system in a shambles as he draws closer and closer to the killer--and to himself.
