The Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78 is looming large. The Balkans are on fire, Slavonic nations have revolted against the Turkish oppression. Erast Petrovich Fandorin, who tragically lost his young wife Lizonka, enlists to the Serbian army, so that to stifle the bitterness of despair somehow. After at once several hard war ordeals (a shell shock, which left imprint in the form of the famous "Fandorinian stammer"; hostile captivity, of which he managed to get out only after an amazing card win), Fandorin is not only to be again at the tip of the spear against the Turks. He is to find the mysterious and insidious Turkish spy Anwar Efendi - not somewhere, but in Russian General Headquarters.
