In his groundbreaking Gorky Park, Martin Cruz Smith created one of the iconic investigators of contemporary fiction, Arkady Renko. In Tatiana, Smith delivers his most ambitious and politically daring novel since. When the brilliant and fearless young reporter Tatiana Petrovna falls to her death from a sixth-floor window in Moscow in the same week that notorious mob billionaire Grisha Grigorenko is shot in the back of the head, Renko finds himself on the trail of a mystery as complex and dangerous as modern Russia itself. The body of an elite government translator shows up on the sand dunes of Kalingrad: killed for nothing but a cryptic notebook filled with symbols. A frantic hunt begins to locate and decipher this notebook. In a fast-changing and lethal race to uncover what this translator knew, and how he planned to reveal it to the world, Renko makes a startling discovery that propels him deeper into Tatiana's past - and, at the same time, paradoxically, into Russia's future. 'At times the writing mesmerizes with its originality...Long live Renko.' The New York Times Book Review 'Smith's point hits the mark with requisite force…Basic human behaviour - especially the worst of it - is so deeply embedded into psychological fabric that the same battles are waged even when the monsters keep shifting shapes.' The Los Angeles Times

Martin Cruz Smith's “masterful” (USA TODAY) and “irresistible” (People) New York Times bestseller and Washington Post notable book of the year: Arkady Renko must connect the dots among a Russian journalist’s mysterious death, corrupt politicians, murderous gangsters, and brazen bureaucrats. Arkady Renko, one of the iconic investigators of contemporary fiction, has survived the cultural journey from the Soviet Union to the New Russia, only to find the nation as obsessed with secrecy and brutality as was the old Communist dictatorship. In Tatiana, the melancholy hero unravels a mystery as complex and dangerous as modern Russia itself. The reporter Tatiana Petrovna falls to her death from a sixth-floor window in Moscow the same week that a mob billionaire is shot and buried with the trappings due a lord. The trail leads to Kaliningrad, a Cold War “secret city” that is separated by hundreds of miles from the rest of Russia. The more Arkady delves into Tatiana’s past, the more she leads him into a surreal world of wandering sand dunes, abandoned children, and a notebook written in the personal code of a dead translator. Finally, in a lethal race to uncover what the translator knew, Renko makes a startling discovery that draws him still deeper into Tatiana’s past—and, paradoxically, into Russia’s future, where bulletproof cars, poets, corruption of the Baltic Fleet, and a butcher for hire combine to give Kaliningrad the “distinction” of having the highest crime rate in Russia. More than a mystery, Tatiana is Martin Cruz Smith’s most ambitious and politically daring novel since Gorky Park. It is a story rich in character, black humor, and romance, with an insight that is the hallmark of a writer The New York Times has called “endlessly entertaining and deeply serious…[not merely] our best writer of suspense, but of one of our best writers, period.”

Tatiana is a unique story from the early 1800s brought into the 21st century by oral tradition. Tatiana recalls the genuine romance and fearful adventures of a young girl born in Cook Inlet during a season of cultural con ict, violence, greed, and extreme hardship. She was forced to choose between the simple desires of her Dena'ina Athabaskan mother and the adamant demands of an adoring yet intensely stubborn Russian father. Her decision changed history during that era and inspires this generation with rich cultural knowledge and values. “At that time of the world, every family was its own last resort. e innocent were forced to defend themselves, o en emerging less than innocent...if they emerged at all.”

Born Princess Tatiana Wassiltchikoff, her first memories are of herself as a small child in St Petersburg in the closing years of Tsarist Russia, a world of English nannies, of comfort, space and beauty, about to be shattered by war and revolution. She and her family escaped aboard the Princess Ena, sent by King George V to rescue his aunt, to begin a new nomadic and often destitute life of emigration, travelling across Europe to her father's estates in Lithuania. 1939 found her witnessing the horrors of Germany's invasion of Poland, before settling in Berlin, attached to the German Foreign Office, where she would meet and fall in love with her husband, Prince Paul Metternich. Her account of life within the Reich is graphic in its description of the horror and deprivation endured by the civilian population, and sharply critical of the Nazi regime. With her husband sent to the Russian front, her description of the nightmare years of the war are vividly conveyed, as are the dangerous months surrounding the Hitler assassination plot of July 1944 - the Princess and her husband were friends of many of the leading conspirators and only narrowly escaped themselves from being implicated. First published in 1976, this new edition incorporates the many changes which Princess Metternich incorporated into her revised autobiography, which was published in Germany and Russia shortly before her death in 2006.

This stunning new novel from Tatiana de Rosnay, author of the acclaimed New York Times bestseller Sarah's Key, plumbs the depths of complex family relationships and the power of a past secret to change everything in the present. It all began with a simple seaside vacation, a brother and sister recapturing their childhood. Antoine Rey thought he had the perfect surprise for his sister Mélanie's birthday: a weekend by the sea at Noirmoutier Island, where the pair spent many happy childhood summers playing on the beach. It had been too long, Antoine thought, since they'd returned to the island—over thirty years, since their mother died and the family holidays ceased. But the island's haunting beauty triggers more than happy memories; it reminds Mélanie of something unexpected and deeply disturbing about their last island summer. When, on the drive home to Paris, she finally summons the courage to reveal what she knows to Antoine, her emotions overcome her and she loses control of the car. Recovering from the accident in a nearby hospital, Mélanie tries to recall what caused her to crash. Antoine encounters an unexpected ally: sexy, streetwise Angèle, a mortician who will teach him new meanings for the words life, love and death. Suddenly, however, the past comes swinging back at both siblings, burdened with a dark truth about their mother, Clarisse. Trapped in the wake of a shocking family secret shrouded by taboo, Antoine must confront his past and also his troubled relationships with his own children. How well does he really know his mother, his children, even himself? Suddenly fragile on all fronts as a son, a husband, a brother and a father, Antoine Rey will learn the truth about his family and himself the hard way. By turns thrilling, seductive and destructive, with a lingering effect that is bittersweet and redeeming, A Secret Kept is the story of a modern family, the invisible ties that hold it together, and the impact it has throughout life. A film is now in production, to star Melanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds, Now You See Me), Laurent Lafitte (The Crimson Rivers, Little White Lies), and Audrey Dana (Roman de Gare, The Clink of Ice) and will begin shooting in April!
