The reactionary General Khrapov, newly appointed governor-general of Siberia and soon-to-be minister of the interior, is murdered in his official train carriage on the way from St Petersburg to Moscow. A knife, bearing the initials "CG", is thrust up to the hilt in the victim's chest, and State Counsellor Fandorin is allegedly seen fleeing the crime. But all is not quite as it seems. Someone is intent on framing Fandorin - he must discover who they are and find out who is really responsible for the murder.More
