Moscow, June 1945. As Josef Stalin and his cronies lead the public celebrations of victory over Germany in the Second World War, two teenage students are unaccountably shot dead. They turn out to be children of the ruling elite, and the uncompromising secret police investigation which follows forces their friends to testify against each other and, eventually, their parents. Family secrets and unwise love affairs which could lead to summary execution emerge in this utterly gripping novel.
