    In the summer of 1991, Arkady Renko has returned from exile and is back on the homicide squad in a newly democratic Moscow. When Arkady’s informant, Rudy Rosen, and his underworld bank-on-wheels are consumed in a ball of fire, Arkady finds himself in an investigation that points to the heart of Russia’s decaying infrastructure.

    Richard Delman says: "Another fantastic novel by Martin Cruz Smith."

    Story

    Martin Cruz Smith's Arkady Renko ranks as one of my favorite characters: cynical, sardonic, and tragically honest. I love the Arkady Renko books and Frank Muller embodies Renko's tone and character perfectly. I was thrilled when this version of Polar Star was added to the Audible library, and now Red Square. In another format I have also listened to Frank Muller read Gorky Park and Havana Bay. Hopefully these recordings will make it to Audible as well; in fact I've been so spoiled that I can't listen to any other reader. To me Frank Muller's voice IS the voice of Arkady Renko.
    Structurally, this book takes a bit to get into, relative to the preceding books in the series. But once Renko has a personal investment in solving the crimes, the plot flows easily and compellingly. Throughout, Cruz Smith's language is as poetic and profound as it is in all the Renko books. Highly recommended!
