It’s Russia at the end of the Tsarist rule.
Crumbling buildings and aristocrats, grandiose in their self-importance, are all too easily taken down by our “too clever by half” protagonist – a “wannabe”, a futurist who understands the value of influence, how to acquire it and how to channel it to his own ends. No Wikileaks in this era, but in this line of work, one must be oh so careful when one puts pen to paper.
