I’m a Martin Cruz Smith fan: “Polar Star,” “Gorkey Park” and “Red Square” are all excellent, with more than a few moments of brilliance. In fact the rest of the Arkady Renko books are worth it too… except this one “Three Stations.” When I got to the end I was sure that I had mistakenly purchased the abridged version… but not the case. The last 30 minutes left me with the impression that Smith was under pressure to just close down the plot lines and end the book. Disappointing.
I've enjoyed the series in the past... but not this one. It seems that Kevin Hearne was really struggling to come up with something entertaining in this book #7.
Fast paced, gripping, easily understood… and truly makes you think about the consequences of the hi-technology that is controlling most facets of our lives. Highly recommended!
