The reading is top notch, almost a performance, with Russian accents and different mannerisms and Arkady Renko's tired cynicism perfectly captured. The text, of course, is brilliant. For those unfamiliar with Martin Cruz Smith, this is the latest in his series about Moscow detective Arkady Renko, who has worked cases on a fishing ship, in Moscow, in Cuba, and in this installment in the ashes of the Chernobyl nuclear accident. It's a terrific read.
"Wolves eat Dogs" is a well written and well narrated tale with important themes.
As usual, Arkady Renko is trying to discover and expose the truth while others with typical Soviet mentalities try to cover up the truth. Hurray for Arkady!
The history of the Chernobyl disaster is skilfully woven into the plot.
