Boris Akunin (2004) Winter Queen.

A historical conspiracy, set in Czarist Russia. The hero is the somewhat naive, but good-looking Police Detective Fandorin, who investigates the suicide of a student and finds much more than he expected. If you like linear action thrillers with short sentences, forget this book! But if you savor elaborate, intricate plots, historical atmosphere, unique characters, bizarre plot twists, deception and disguise, read the "Winter Queen".
