An international gang war chooses Moscow as its battlefield.
Moscow police inspector Porfiry Rostnikov has adapted well to life without communism. But under the Soviets, blood feuds were pursued in the dark halls of bureaucracy, and now they take place in the streets. An international drug ring has chosen Moscow as its next port of call, and the only thing standing in its way is the budding Russian mob, headed by a young man whose brutality is matched only by his madness. In a gang war of this magnitude, no civilian is safe.
As Rostnikov tries to stop an army of two-legged killers, his cohorts at the Moscow police department take on the four-legged variety. Dogfighting in Moscow is big business, and interests in this illegal sport stretch to the highest reaches of their corrupt department. In the new Moscow, death and profit go hand in hand.

I'm really enjoying the Inspector Rostnikov series about the Russian detective, but I had a hard time reading parts of this one since one of the main topics was catching a dog fighting ring and it had some dog fight scenes. I would have liked a different topic.
I think that dog fighting is horrific and would not have read this book if it had not been a Rostnikov story.
