The lead theme of the book is revealed by the words beauty once seen is never lost." Story develops against the grandeur of the old imperial Russia providing a dramatic contrast to the woes and poverty of the present day Russia destroyed by over seventy years of social experiment known as communism. Life in Moscow today resembles the days of Al Capone in Chicago at the onset of the previous century. Determined to understand this enigmatic country author embarks on the course of seeking the reasons and manifestations of the ruthless human behavior that dominates this eleven time zones empire, where Shakespearean "to be or not to be" is converted to a more pedestrian statement "to survive or to perish." Independently from the events of historical and social nature a charming romance evolves painted on the canvas of budding relationship between a foreigner and a beautiful Moscow girl, Svetlana. At the end the man enchanted by his own Slavic roots and the suffering country which surrounds him falls in love with the woman who embodies it all. The story resembles a classic fairy tale about the Demon who lost his mind and fell in love with beautiful Tamara.
