Set in L.A.s vibrant Russian immigrant community, where new money and raw power collide with hidden agendas left over from the Cold War, Prisoner of Memory confirms Hamiltons reputation as one of the most astute writers of engrossing, atmospheric crime fiction, illuminating the social realities of contemporary Los Angeles.While investigating the sighting of a mountain lion in L.A.s Griffith Park, Eve comes across the body of a teenage boy who has been shot to death execution-style.

The son of a Russian emigre scientist, the victim was an exemplary student with no ties to gangs or drugs. Was his murder a random act of violence, the result of a teenage love triangle, or the work of the Russian Mafia? Eve, also the child of Russian immigrants, feels an instant rapport with the boys grief-stricken father, Sasha Lukin, a cultured old-world gentleman who she senses is not telling her all he knows about his sons murder.Forced to partner on the story with her newsroom rival, police reporter Josh Brandywine, whose interest in her turns disconcertingly personal, Eve uncovers connections between the victims family and a fascinating, chameleon-like FBI agent and a brutal Russian mobster who warns Eve not to pry into the teenagers death.

Complicating Eves pursuit of the story is the arrival at her door of a young Russian man who claims to be her long-lost cousin. Is he truly a link to the familyshe thought shed lost or an impostor sent by the Russian mob to spy on her?As the violence surrounding the Lukin family escalates to encompass Eve, and as she moves closer to unraveling the motives of a brilliant, vengeful killer, Prisoner of Memory races to a thrilling resolution that holds surprising personal revelations about Eve herself.
