Peter doesn't know he's an archetype, the Prince of Coins incarnate, a wealthy upstart striving to be king. He doesn't know his fiancée was raised by fortune-tellers either. But he does know she speaks Russian, and he needs her help to close a deal with the Russian mob.
Red Russia is the story of an American businessman and his translator in Russia, of business, lies, and deception, of fortunes bought and told.
