When Daniel Kalder, acclaimed author of Lost Cosmonaut, descended into the sewers of Moscow in pursuit of the mythical lost city of tramps, he didn’t realise that he was embarking on a bizarre, year-long odyssey that would lead him thousands of miles across Russia to the Arctic Circle. After exploring the depths of Moscow’s ‘Underground Planet’, Kalder chases down demons and exorcists in a post-Orange Revolution Ukraine, meets Vissaron Christ, messiah to thousands of followers in Siberia, enters the world’s only wooden skyscraper and encounters a man with a bizarre secret that may explain everything . . .
