The Sin Collector (Masha Karavai Detective Series) - Shelley Fairweather-Vega, Daria Desombre

A brilliant law student (still very much perturbed by her father’s mysterious murder and slightly obsessed with serial killers )manages to find herself an internship at Moscow’s police headquarters .As bodies (both of unsolved murders in the past as in the present )turn up in different parts of Moscow, Masha discovers a strange pattern relating to medieval texts,maps, New Rome and Heavenly Jerusalem. The storyline is good, the characters are believable and it is a new twist on “the serial killer “.There is however one comment I would like to make, as Moscow plays such a prominent role in this story,a map of the city would have been helpful,handy…As it is,all the characters revolve around maps with different gates, walls and parks…but the reader(not a resident of Moscow)feels a bit lost.
