Everybody who has seen the pre-release could not put it down.


GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, February 20, 2013, Cristelle Comby has announced the upcoming release, on 13/03/13, of the first book in her new “Neve & Egan” detective series. Mark the calendar, as this first entry, Russian Dolls, is sure to set the literary world on fire. Cristelle has mastered the art of spinning an engrossing crime drama, while making the reader feel that they are part of the story.

Russian Dolls has all the elements of a successful new-adult crime drama. The story opens with the main character, Alexandra Neve, a student at a LondonUniversity, as her world is shattered by the news of her best friend’s “apparent” suicide. The policemen involved in the case are not willing to look deeper into the matter, so what can she do to prove there’s more to it? And if her friend’s death was not a suicide who was it that killed her?


Soon enough Neve comes to realise that she needs help, but doesn’t know who to turn to. In steps Professor Ashford Egan, a blind middle-aged history teacher, who’s willing to accompany her on her dangerous journey of discovery. The two of them become one of the most unlikely team of investigators who, in order to accomplish their goal, have to overcome their deepest fears and confront an all-powerful enemy, the Russian mafia.


Neve and Egan are two seemingly ordinary people, who in the course of the investigation manage to become extraordinary, and thus form a team unlike any other in Detective fiction. Russian Dolls, their first adventure, is a story of self-discovery in a way; the ones to follow will highlight their crime-fighting future, a future that the reader will be thrilled to discover along with them.
