    Highly Recommended

    Martin Cruz Smith delivers a sequel worthy of the sublime Gorky Park. Renko is as relevant, relatable & irascible as ever. The story line is fast paced, contemporary & as dark & convoluted as Russia's own. Well worth the read!

    Not the best, lacking cohesion on occasion

    I enjoy the Russian mindset/politics that are central to this series of books. While I did enjoy this one, I found the inclusion of the chess-playing wonder boy a bit of a distraction. He wasn't central to the story as it played out, except ultimately for one particularly essential act. Indeed, it was almost as if he was included just for this alone. Ultimately, this is a story about reviving belief/pride in a Russia past and a dark history revealed in the course of trying to find the opposite. Getting there seemed to be a bit obtuse along the way, but I stuck with it because of Arkady Renko, the central character.
