Gold of the Scythians


Treasures from Scythian graves gained a new life changing hands and traveling from one country to another. But their way was marked by blood…

Marina Evlanova deeply worried by her son Dmitry’s behavior contacted Astra Eltsova for assistance as Astra was dealing with private investigations and could give a clear view of her son’s life. All of a sudden Dmitry divorced his wife Zlata, abandoned his position in the bank, moved to a rented apartment and decided to write a novel.

Zlata was eager to reunite with her husband, but told strange stories about him. According to her words, he became obsessed with the strange woman in black who made him participate in some sinister rituals at the cemetery… Astra wanted to speak with Zlata, but when visiting her, she found her dead – the woman was strangled. The photo from Italian travels lay in her bosom – in it, Dmitry and she were tossing coins into the fountain in Rome. The fountain was in the form of bowl. This gave an idea to Astra that everything that happened recently was connected to the gold bowl long kept in the Evlanov family. The bowl came from Scythian burial mound and had a picture of many-handed goddess on it.
