Martin Cruz Smith has delivered another beautifully written Arkady Renko thriller. I don't know another author who so successfully combines gripping narrative, dry wit, social commentary and an insight on the human condition. I was almost dissuaded from buying this audiobook after reading some poorish reviews -but I'm so glad I went ahead. Some reviewers have critized the book for having a "hurried" ending. I didn't think that was true or fair. The plot does accelerate rapidly at the end but I liked the change of pace and there was no dropoff in the high standard of writing. I wasn't a huge fan of Ron McLarty's voice and narration to begin with but ultimately I think he did a fine job.
