There are four of them. A pilot from Anadyr; a famous art historian; a shaman woman from Altai village; a fashionable Moscow artist. Each of them has their own life, but an emergency situation arises, and the four of them come together. To be more precise — they are gathered for the task! A library director died and strange events start to happen — the library has been destroyed as if somebody was trying to find all the treasures of the world, and someone is clearly spying the staff. What exactly was hidden among the books...? And why is it so important to find it?

Who are those four? Why do they know how to drive all kinds of vehicles, shoot, do surgeries, solve complex codes? The pilot, the art historian, the shaman and the artist — will answer all the questions and pass all the tests. They have a whole common life behind that was full of everything everything: love, partings, quarrels with loved ones, old grievances and new hopes. They will cope with the task, will unravel the ball, will survive the losses and will find love — no one canceled the earthly gravity ...

This extraordinary woman entered the literary world more than 15 years ago, but even now each of her novelties invariably heads book ratings and in most cases goes behind book pages to the screen. Tatyana Ustinova is unrivalled in combining detective mystery, deep psychological overtones and a beautiful story of sincere love. The unofficial title of The First Among The Best has long been awarded to Tatyana Ustinova by millions of readers.
