El detective Arkady Renko es el encargado de investigar un insólito fenómeno ocurrido en las calles de Moscú: algunos pasajeros del metro aseguran haber visto al fantasma de Stalin en la estación Chistye Prudy. Este pequeño «incidente» se convierte en algo mucho más serio de lo que en un primer momento parecía cuando Renko descubre que dos de los detectives más prestigiosos de la ciudad podrían estar implicados en este extraño suceso.
Todo indica que estas misteriosas apariciones están conectadas con un partido político, del que Isokov, uno de los detectives, es militante. Dicho partido esconde datos realmente reveladores sobre lo que pasó en Chechenia en la década de los noventa. Renko pronto descubrirá secretos que se remontan a la segunda guerra mundial y que mucha gente está dispuesta a proteger al precio que sea.
En El fantasma de Stalin, Martin Cruz Smith, el prestigioso autor de El parque Gorki, nos presenta un original e inusual retrato de la Rusia actual de la mano de su detective más carismático, Arkady Renko.
«Una obra maestra del suspense que construye una lúcida mirada sobre la Rusia contemporánea.»
