Glasnost has brought many western influences to Moscow. Along with McDonald's and rock music comes rampant consumerism and now, in Brian Freemantle's latest thriller, a serial killer. Russian Militia Colonel Dimitri Danilov, facing one of the most puzzling and terrifying cases of his career, must trace the trail of a murderer who has brutally killed a beautiful young American Embassy economist. But when he discovers that the victim - the niece of a publicity-hungry Senator - led a very adventurous sex life, which almost certainly included one of her colleagues, the Americans clamor to take over the case. As another horrific murder takes place and pressure mounts for a quick conviction, Danilov must join forces with the FBI investigative team, led by Agent Bill Crowley. And so, in the full glare of publicity, begins a joint Russian-American investigation - a deadly competition - in search of information about the dead woman. Yet amid the Byzantine labyrinths of Moscow's investigative process and the political machinations of interested parties on both sides of the Atlantic, it's too easy to lose sight of the killer, leaving him free to strike again... Combining the thrill of Silence of the Lambs with the intrigue of Gorky Park, The Button Man paints a colorful and gripping picture of seedy deception in contemporary Moscow.
