Jana Matinova is a senior Slovak police officer following the trail of a master criminal across half of Europe. His old rivals think he’s dead and are squabbling over his legacy.

The book is more in­ter­est­ing in the long flashbacks to her early career under the Communists than in the fairly pre­pos­ter­ous present-day plot, which relies too heavily on co­in­ci­dences and clichés.
