Although this is a work of fiction, the author helped me understand more about the culture of Russia than any non-fiction text ever could. Deep and well-written.

Other than stumbling over the Russian names, this was an excellent story. An American woman is in charge of privatizing a vodka factory in Russia run by a gangster. She is also an alcoholic. And married. And she gets involved with the gangster. Throw in some child murders, crooked cops, and vodka, and more vodka. Very good enthralling story.
