    Story
    (153)

    One of the iconic investigators of contemporary fiction, Arkady Renko - cynical, analytical, and quietly subversive - has survived the cultural journey from the Soviet Union to the New Russia, only to find the nation as obsessed with secrecy and brutality as was the old Communist dictatorship. In Tatiana, Martin Cruz Smith’s most ambitious novel since Gorky Park, the melancholy hero finds himself on the trail of a mystery as complex and dangerous as modern Russia herself.

    Rollin says: "Interesting story but terrible narration"
    "Book is. Great Narrator is horrible."

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is an excellent book but the audio version is horrendous. I bought via Amazon and did not hear the book until after I had purchased it. The narrator sounds faintly like Foster Brooks, but with more liquor in him. I literally listened to a minute or too and then decided I had had enough.

    If I listened to the full narration it would ruin all ensuing Renko novels for me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Martin Cruz Smith is an extremely good story teller with great imagery and prose.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Na


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The only redeeming quality was that I had a hard copy of the book and did not have to listen to the narrator.
