This novel is about revelations and revenge on a Volga Cruise from Moscow to St. Petersburg.
Confessions by a struggling American child psychologist and by a retired American ambassador with an exaggerated sense of importance and entitlement, now a university professor of practice with ethics his chosen specialty, are triggered by a tour of Moscow's Novodevichy cemetery.
At the beginning of a television episode of The Closer, viewers are told that everyone has something to confess. Some confessions, however, have serious consequences, as Francis Pickle and Neville Ogleby discover at the end of their ten-day cruise aboard the Novikov Priboi.
In the wings of this novel stands a Russian figure, father of the tour guide and friend of the study leader, who considers it an absolute duty to exact revenge for false accusations made years earlier by Ogleby and Pickle about an American whose ashes are interred in the Novodevichy cemetery alongside those of a KGB general.
"I'm going down to the beach to find Jim Libby. If you'll come along we'll have a prime sail; and most likely this is the last chance we shall have to go out with him, for his vessel leaves in the morning." "How can I go when I've got to mind this young one all the forenoon just 'cause the nurse must go an' have a sick headache? I don't believe she feels half as bad as I do!" And Walter Morse looked mournfully out over the blue waters with but little care for his baby sister, who was already toddling dangerously near the long flight of steps leading from the veranda of the large summer hotel. "Can't you coax off for a couple of hours?" the first speaker, Harry Vandyne, asked. "It's no use. Mother has gone to ride, and said I was to stay here until she came back." Harry started toward the beach, determined not to lose a single hour of pleasure because of his friend's engagements; but before he had taken half a dozen steps a sudden, and what seemed like a very happy thought, occurred to him.
