Gorobets is a murderer. Age 17, just before the outbreak of the First World War, he plotted to kill the Tsar. He failed, but his bomb killed innocent bystanders. Picked up by the secret police, Gorobets was exiled to Siberia, and sent to ‘Ubiichogorsk’ the ‘City of Murderers’. Now trained as a doctor when two bodies are found with their insides ripped to shreds, Gorobets is sent to investigate as the authorities appoint him to play detective around the camp.
But who can he suspect of murder in a city of murderers?
