I was a big fan of Miller's debut, the Booker-shortlisted Snowdrops. This, his second novel, is set in Ukraine at the time of the Orange Revolution, and in the present day. It follows Simon Davey, a senior British diplomat in Kiev in 2004 who was sacked after a scandal involving Olesya, a local woman embroiled in the anti-government protests. In 2017 he spots her unexpectedly in London—so what is she doing now, and what did she do back then?
