When Kolya moves into a new flat in Kiev, he finds a book hidden within a volume of "War and Peace".

He meets a host of unlikely characters on the way, including Bedouins, ex-KGB officers and a spirit-like companion in the form of a chameleon..."The Good Angel of Death" is a classic, first-rate Kurkov yarn which is sure to delight old and new fans alike.
