Snowdrops by Andrew Miller

In the early 2000’s, the basis of Russian business was corruption and the basis of Russian entertainment was sleaze. Nicholas Platt, a British lawyer working in Moscow at the time, looks back and explains how he became ensnared in both. After meeting two beautiful sisters at a Russian train depot, he became involved in their lives and problems, including their efforts to help an elderly aunt. But things were not what they seemed and as Nick tells his story, he points out the warning signs he should have heeded but didn’t, and turns the story into a suspenseful page turner with a shocking conclusion.  For an intense read, check out Snowdrops @the library!
