Investigative journalist Iliya is contacted by two whistleblowers from the US and Russian intelligence services within a few minutes of each other. Scoop or trap? He and his American colleague Boris play along and become involved in a two-track investigation that leads them to Hong Kong, Vienna, New York and Moscow.

The leaked documents lay bare an abyss of corruption, deceit and collusion between criminal oligarchs and the mafia, implicating the American and Russian heads of state. How much is to be believed? Who wins if lies are propagated? Are the two reporters merely pawns in the hands of the intelligence services?

The last to join their team is Emi, a journalist who has made a documentary film about sexual abuse of women and children. Is it merely a coincidence that some of the perpetrators’ names crop up in the leaked intelligence documents?

With his unique literary brilliance, Iliya Troyanov juggles fact and fiction in this novel and highlights, as if in passing, how fake news has turned us into accomplices of those in power.

The new novel by international bestselling author Iliya Troyanov (The Collector of Worlds) explores a web of corruption and collusion between the United States and Russia.
