191) THE GENTLE AXE—R.N. Morris—Filled with the passions of Russia and multiple murders, this wonderful ‘historical crime novel’ leads through an investigation in 1866 St. Petersburg to a magnificently convoluted conclusion. A large man is found hanging from a tree with an axe in his belt and at his feet, a dwarf is dead, contained in a suitcase. The investigation or Porfiry Petrovich branches from houses of prostitution, through pawn shops, to the finest mansions and respectable businesses in St. Petersburg…and introduces and well develops characters with very long Russian names, the parts of which are sometimes used interchangeably. An excellent mystery..historical or not.
