Murder in Moscow is the thrilling and humorous fifth book in the series. Fiona Figg and Kitty Lane make a fantastic duo as both are talented spies in their own ways. Fiona makes clever use of disguise whereas Kitty is good in a fight and is often the person who comes to Fiona's rescue. 
I was anxious for Fiona at the beginning of the novel when she was arrested by the Cheka. Arrest in a foreign land during a civil war is never a good thing. It isn't long before she is caught up in another investigation and murder. With daring escapades, suspense and drama there isn't a dull moment.
I had very high hopes for Fiona and Ferdrick Fredricks at the end of the last novel so I was surprised at the turn of events in this book. I still have questions about both men but I have a soft spot for Fredrick and I get the sense that it's with him where Fiona's heart truly lies. Only time will tell and I'll be tagging along their journey to find out.
