Once the vice-president of the National Bank of Guadeloupe George gets an email from an unknown to him Russian who is dying in a Maltese hospital. A Russian stranger says that their common friend recommended him to approach George asking for help. Th e email really looks like a usual spam, and the banker is close to deleting it. Close, but not quite, so he doesn’t delete this email but flies into Malta to learn more. A hundred years before that a professor arrives to Malta after having fled the Bolshevik Russia and the 1917 Revolution… Their lives cross — in the book.
