Summary
Russian-born Nikolai Luzhin is a driver for one of London's most notorious organized crime families. Semyon heads the syndicate and is the proprietor of a plush Trans-Siberian restaurant, but his friendliness masks a cold and brutal core. Fortunes are tested by Semyon's volatile son and enforcer, Kirill. Nikolai's carefully maintained existence is jarred when he crosses paths at Christmastime with Anna Khitrova, a midwife at a North London hospital. Anna is deeply affected by the death of a teenager while giving birth, and tries to trace the baby's lineage. With Semyon and Kirill closing ranks and Anna pressing her inquiries, Nikolai unexpectedly finds his loyalties divided. Hanging in the balance is a harrowing chain of murder, deceit, and retribution
