The Man Without a Face is the chilling account of how a small-minded, low-level KGB operative came to control the world's largest country and, in an astonishingly short time, destroyed years of progress, making Russia once more a threat to her own people and to the world. Handpicked in 1999 by the 'Family' surrounding an ailing and increasingly unpopular Boris Yeltsin, Vladimir Putin, with very little governmental or administrative experience beyond having served as deputy mayor of St Petersburg, seemed like the perfect choice in the eyes of an oligarchy bent on moulding the president's successor to its own designs. Suddenly the boy who had scrapped his way through post-war Leningrad schoolyards, dreaming of ruling the world, was a public figure, and his popularity soared. Russia and an infatuated West were determined to see the progressive leader of their dreams, even as with ruthless efficiency Putin dismantled the country's media, wrested control and wealth from the country's burgeoning business class, and decimated the fragile mechanisms of democracy. Within a few brief years, virtually every obstacle to his unbridled control was removed and every opposing voice silenced, with political rivals and critics driven into exile or to the grave. As a journalist living in Moscow, Masha Gessen experienced this history firsthand, and for The Man Without a Face she has drawn on information and sources no other writer has tapped. Her horrifying and spellbinding account of how this 'faceless' man manoeuvred his way into absolute - and absolutely corrupt - power will stand as a classic of narrative non-fiction.

Excerpt from The Man Without a Face Monsieur Barrabas! Hurry home, for the love of God! Something terrible has happened! And in the same abrupt manner she turned her back and walked quickly into the house. It seemed as if I, with my long artist's hair and flowing beard, had for the first time in my life inspired my neigh bors with a feeling of terror.

Harrison feels the job somewhat beneath him but is in need of the money and, when he arrives with his invaluable assistant Henry, he discovers there is more to this role than meets the eye. It turns out that Harrison has been recommended to Mrs Marston by a family friend, Helen Williams; a woman who bears more than a passing resemblance to his old foe, Jeanne de Marplay. When the Marstons’ neighbour Sir Jeremiah Bamberger dies in mysterious circumstances, Harrison is called upon to solve the crime, and uncovers dark family secrets in the process. First published in 1932, The Man Without a Face is the second Clay Harrison mystery from the great forgotten crime writer, Clifton Robbins.
