The Inexplicable Affair of the Mesmerising Russian Nobleman

398 pages5 hours


Gentleman adventurer Heinrich von Schneemann has been sent on a mission by his mysterious patron, Lady Glenshire. The quiet country house weekend is disrupted when the host is murdered. Schneemann must find the killer to prove his innocence as he is in the unfortunate position of his alibi being that he was burgling the room next door...

Schneemann, respectable if not always respectful, uncovers clues to the perpetrator of several crimes in high society; one Count Andropoff, a rich, well-connected occultist who is rumoured to be able to grant the heart’s desire of a man (or even a woman). As he closes in on his enemy, will he solve the greatest mystery of all – what does lie in the heart of a man like Schneemann?

A comedy crime novel set in 1902, The Inexplicable Affair of the Mesmerising Russian Nobleman pokes outrageous fun at murder mysteries, heists and Edwardian England.
