"Something's happened at Blizhny"

Archangel, Robert Harris, ISBN 0099282410

This is a relatively straightforward (as such things go) thriller concerning a hypothetical legacy of Stalin's; a well-constructed plot, a reasonably interesting cast, etc, but at least for me nothing much to make it particularly stand out in the terms of its own genre. That said I did like the description of and ruminations upon Russia, over its recent history and in the near-present, which made it appeal to some of the enthusiams that have gripped me over the past couple of years.
