A Cold Red Sunrise: An Inspector Porfiry Rostnikov Mystery

Stuart M. Kaminsky

One Dead Commissar

At an icebound naval weather station in far Siberia, the young daughter of an exiled dies under suspicious circumstances. The high-ranking Commissar sent to investigate the mystery suffers a similar fate: he is murdered by an icicle thrust into his skull.

One Live Cop

Inspector Porfiry Rostnikov is dispatched to solve the Commissar’s murder, with one caveat: he is not to investigate the girl’s death. Even if all the clues tell him that the two cases are linked.

One Cold Killer

In a single, fateful day, Rostnikov will hear two confessions, watch someone die, conspire against the government, and nearly meet his own death. All under the watchful eye of the KGB—and someone much closer and infinitely more terrifying.
