SHORTLISTED FOR A CWA DEBUT DAGGER AWARD The first in a gripping series of crime novels set in the dark heart of Putin's Russia, featuring the sharp and intriguing policewoman, Captain Natalya Ivanova.

Student Zena Dahl, the daughter of a Swedish millionaire, has gone missing in St Petersburg (or Piter as the city is colloquially known) after a night out with a friend.

Captain Natalya Ivanova is assigned the case. It makes a change for Natalya from her usual fare of domestic violence work, but, because of the family's wealth, there's pressure for a quick result.

But as she investigates she discovers that the case is not as straightforward as it may seem.

Dark, violent and insightful, MOTHERLAND twists and turns to a satisfyingly dramatic conclusion.

Ideal for fans of JO NESBO, TOM ROB SMITH, DAVID YOUNG and Scandi shows dramas, like THE KILLING and THE BRIDGE. `The dark heart of Putin's Russia beneath the glitz of St Petersburg provides the heady setting for this excellent and gripping debut.

Abson, who was shortlisted for a Crime Writers' Debut Dagger for Motherland, is surely a name to watch.

A Child 44 for Putin-land, this classy page-turner oozes with atmosphere.' David Young, bestselling author of STASI CHILD and STASI WOLF
