A deep, gripping and captivating audiobook that tells about the fate of people in a truly frightening and extraordinary time.
He lost everything: an officer’s rank, a high position, salary, a separate apartment. The case he was leading fell apart. Those under investigation were released and declared innocent. But he’s not going to give up. He kept faith in himself and in his special mission. He starts life anew, builds a brilliant career, acquires influential acquaintances. The KGB generals and employees of the International Department of the Central Committee consider him their own, useful, reliable, and do not suspect that he is using them in a complex special operation, which he has been developing alone for many years. He will prove the existence of an enemy conspiracy and the guilt of the former defendants. No one knows about his secret plans. Nobody is trying to stop him. Nobody, except for a nineteen-year-old girl, an orphan from a dirty communal apartment in the Gorlovy Dead End. But she has not been in the world for a long time. She is just a ghost who appears to him on sleepless nights.
The novel spans a quarter of a century — from 1952 to 1977. The plot is based on real events.
