Her life is upended when she finds Mikha her friend dead on an icy garage floor. She found him splayed on the floor, head turned to the side, one leg bent with his cheek resting in a puddle of his own blood.

Mikha was not only her coworker and friend but a critical part of the heist they had been planning. It was a job that would have changed their lives forever as it would have netted them millions.

Could Mikha have been murdered by some rich residents of Moscow they recently scammed over a car repair job? Maybe it was vengeance from the local crime boss who may have heard that they intended to scam him too.

The only thing she is certain about is that she has to find the man responsible for the homicide or she will never sleep easy. It does not help that the only two people she oud trust with her life have the most to benefit from her friend’s death.
Her former ex-boyfriend will now work doubly hard to convince Zoya that the heist is dangerous and not viable while Yegor her boyfriend will now get to lead the team.

Nadya Frank’s novel “The Boy on the Highway” is the story of Zoya Volkova who stays out of big trouble as she makes her income off of small-time frauds.

However, things get out of hand when what was to be a simple con spins out of control and she is witness to the assassination of Oleg Dolin, a prominent businessman from Moscow.

Her instinct kicks in and she takes the man’s son to safety only to discover that someone is now hunting her down. To keep Kirill the man’s son and herself safe, she will need to resolve the mystery of the murder.

Still, sieving through the dead man’s connections and history often puts her at odds with Rima the boy’s mother. Even with Zoya informing her that she needs some critical information she is determined to keep some dark family secrets.
Soon enough, the police start closing in on Zoya and the goons become reckless but she will not abandon her attempts to save Kirill.

Will she be able to go against some of the wealthiest families in Moscow, what seems like an omnipotent mafia, and a very corrupt police force?

Combining aspects of crime thriller and psychological suspense, it makes for a dark story with unpredictable turns and twists.

“The Man by Her Door,” tells the story of Alisa Feoktistova, a 20-year-old who goes missing from her own building and the only thing left behind is blood on the stairwell.

It is soon evident that there is a brand new killer targeting victims in Moscow. He may have killed three people before his current victim and always marks his scenes with a lot of blood from his victims.

Could he have killed all his victims or could he have kept them alive despite the massive bloodletting? Zoya Volkova is determined to get to the bottom of the case since her brother had once upon a time gone missing in very similar circumstances.
Working the case, she stumbles upon the connection between the victims and also finds a dark conspiracy that involves some employees at a hospital in Moscow.

She cannot trust anyone including the missing woman’s family, even as she has to untangle a web of stigma, medicine taboos, and betrayals.

The only thing she is certain of is that the killer is not yet done and multiple innocent lives are still on the line.

It makes for an unputdownable and addictive thriller with some mind-blowing twists and turns.
