KIRKUS REVIEW

Ambling, amateur crime tracing with Gregory Sergievitch Favlov, a professor of Slavenic languages, finding multiple setbacks in his search for the why of a dope addict's death. Interrelated histories of a symphony conductor and his wife; a San Francisco politician and his daughter; the scandals of a mining town -- all form a complicated weave. More murders add up to fair but not firm fun.
