Special Assignments (Erast Fandorin #5) by Boris Akunin (****)

Surprisingly more enjoyable than I thought it would have been. I think perhaps Erast Fandorin is the Russian version of Sherlock Holmes.

There are 2 mysteries in this one book: Special Assignments and The Decorator. In this book, we mainly follow Erast Fandorin by the view of his assistant, Anisii Tulipov (Sherlock’s Watson but with his own characteristics).

*Crime was perpetrated
*Erast Fandorin was engaged as ‘special’ investigator
*Trap was laid & sprung
*Criminals caught

All in all a regular mystery book but I like the difference in culture and the settings, etc.


Would love to hear your thoughts...
