Boris Akunin has written a new novel from the detective series “The Adventures of Erast Fandorin”. The title of the book is still a secret. It is only known that the main character will not be Fandorin himself, but his valet Masahiro Shibata. He announced it on his closed Telegram channel.
“Well, that is, the main character is not Erast Petrovich, but “just Masa” (over the years he somehow got closer to me). Fandorin is a “bit player”. However, in half of the novels he was not in the center of the story either, so the dark-haired handsome man is no stranger to it, ”Akunin quotes RBC.
The writer added that he wrote the new book in a month and a half in “exotic circumstances” while awaiting a doctor’s diagnosis of a “prolonged, interminable cold.” The novel may come out this year (if Akunin decides that it turned out “not rubbish”).
Let’s remember that Boris Akunin became the most popular author of 2022 according to Litres. The Liters service analyzed the interest of Russians in electronic books and audiobooks, identifying the works that were most in demand last year.
