The Case of the General's Thumb Synopsis

'Kurkov is a fine satirist and a real, blackly comic, find' Observer Discover the international thriller, shot through with black satire and authentic detail, by one of Ukraine's most highly acclaimed authors. When the corpse of a distinguished general and presidential adviser is found, attached to an advertising balloon, lieutenant Viktor Slutsky is sent in to investigate. Meanwhile, KGB officer Nik Tsensky arrives in Kyiv for a secret mission. A larger-than-life hitman, bombs under furniture, a hearse, a deaf-and-dumb blonde, a tortoise and a parrot all play a part as Kurkov evokes a world of secret militia not seen before in Western fiction.
