       Additional Information  
      A dreamy province of Tsarist Russia. An ambitious young lawyer of Scottish-Russian descent anxious to make his way. And the One-Legged Lady goes missing. A nasty case of kidnapping? Not quite, for the One-Legged Lady is just the popular name of one of the most important ikons in the district. Exactly how important, the sceptical Dmitri, whose task it is to track her down, comes to see. Who has taken her and for what reason? Is it someone interested in adding to his art collection? Is it, as some darkly suggest, just the monastery cashing in on its assets? Or has it something to do with a wave of popular feeling at a time of famine? The sinister Volkov, from the Tsar's Corps of Gendarmes, suspects the latter -- which means trouble for some innocent people unless Dmitri gets there first! Dmitri finds, to his surprise, that the ikon, which he had taken merely as an irrelevant relic from the past, raises some awkward issues about the present and that the One-Legged Lady is very much alive and kicking. Dmitri and the One-Legged Lady is the second novel in the witty and fascinating new series by Michael Pearce which pits the wily and determined Dmitri Kameron against the oppressive forces of the Tsarist regime.
