Summary
British lawyer Nick Platt works as a lawyer in Russia and doesn't ask too many questions about the shady dealings and violence he witnesses. After he meets a set of sisters, one of whom he tells himself he's falling in love with, he becomes too easily involved in a scheme to get their aunt a new apartment.
Critique
Miller, who worked in Russia as a journalist, paints a fascinating portrait of modern Russia in all its sordid and decadent allure. Nick is not a character to love; as he tells the story of his fall from grace to his English fiancee, you find yourself feeling a bit disgusted by his easy manipulation and warped self-justification. Nominated for the Booker Prize.
