Moscow's exclusive Rublyovka neighbourhood is the decadent playground of the Russian nouveau riche. Here, dachas come complete with steam baths, heated floors, and live-in masseurs; poodles are dyed pink to match designer dresses; days of haute couture shopping slip into nights of cocaine-fueled partying; and the city's most glamorous celebrities?including Oscar-winning directors, world-renowned politicians, and gorgeous movie stars?rub shoulders with its most notorious tycoons. Based on the author's own experiences, Casual tells the story of a wealthy young woman whose husband is mysteriously gunned down outside their Moscow apartment. Determined to avenge his murder while maintaining her lavish lifestyle, she must navigate through a treacherous labyrinth of high society and low company. A sensational bestseller in its native Russia, Casual exposes the secret lives of the country's new elite.
