Don't miss the latest book in the Arkady Renko series, THE SIBERIAN DILEMMA by Martin Cruz Smith, 'the master of the international thriller' (New York Times) - available to order now! AN ARKADY RENKO NOVEL: #5 'One of those writers that anyone who is serious about their craft views with respect bordering on awe' Val McDermid 'Makes tension rise through the page like a shark's fin' Independent *** The iron curtain has fallen and a screen of nouveau capitalism stands in its place. Though the New Russia is foreign to Renko, the corruption and brutality that he encounters are all too familiar. The seeming suicide of one of Russia's new billionaires leads Arkady Renko to Chernobyl and the Zone of Exclusion, the still radioactive site of great catastrophe - a spectral netherworld populated by the corrupted, the obstinate and the reckless . . . Praise for Martin Cruz Smith 'The story drips with atmosphere and authenticity - a literary triumph' David Young, bestselling author of Stasi Child 'Smith not only constructs grittily realistic plots, he also has a gift for characterisation of which most thriller writers can only dream' Mail on Sunday 'Smith was among the first of a new generation of writers who made thrillers literary' Guardian 'Brilliantly worked, marvellously written . . . an imaginative triumph' Sunday Times 'Martin Cruz Smith's Renko novels are superb' William Ryan, author of The Constant Soldier

    Geschreven bij Wolves Eat Dogs

    Moscow in 2003. The most vicious crime bosses and businessmen have killed each other, the truce between the different mafia groups appears to hold, when business tycoon Pasha Ivanov falls to his death from his impregnable 10th-floor luxury apartment in Moscow, only 15 minutes after having been dropped off by his security detail. Suicide? Homicide? The initial response of the Russian judiciary is suicide, therefore no need to investigate, do an autopsy and esp. avoid panic among foreign investors.
    This book marks the fifth appearance of (Senior) Investigator Arkady Renko in a novel by MCS. In his famous first appearance in “Gorky Park”, he proved a stubborn detective during Soviet times. Now he has to watch his steps even more: in New Russia some 50.000 former KGB personnel have become entrepreneurs who maintain excellent contacts with key members of government. A fugitive American wheeler dealer who served as Pasha’s assistant secures a respite for Renko in order to do more than a token investigation, but only for a few days... Renko has to move fast.
    The action soon moves to the closed zone around Chernobyl, venue of a nuclear reactor’s melt down, where nobody is supposed to live, let alone engage in business.
    A second investigation in the book concerns the traumatised Zhenya, who refuses to speak, except when reading aloud his favourite fairy tale. Renko has been asked by the director of a home for abandoned children to try and find out Zhenya’s identity, who his father is. Renko takes him to Gorky Park regularly, where the boy beats him repeatedly and resoundingly with chess, then performs his ritual visits to the different attractions, as if to say, this is where I once went with Dad, hoping perhaps to meet him again during one of the visits.
    This is a very rich book with superlative characterisation, great atmosphere, dialogue and pace. An addictive and highly recommended account of the perils of crime investigation in New Russia.
