Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

THE VICTIMS
An unscrupulous cab driver. The killer's own frightened wife. Most troublesome of all, an outspoken dissident, watched closely by the KGB, whose trial had been set for the very next day.
THE WEAPONS
A heavy iron-headed hammer. A rusty, antiquated sickle. And a broken vodka bottle.
THE COPS
Tkach, who seduces suspects into confessing with his apparent innocence. Karpo, a bit of a Tartar, a bit of a vampire, a stolid saint of the Soviet faith. And Rostnikov, their leader, who almost wishes the investigation won't turn out to be too simple. Before the case is over, Rostnikov will remember that wish and regret it.
"Stuart Kaminsky has created a sympathetic and engaging hero . . . ." -- The Cincinnati Post

Dall'editore:

Stuart Kaminsky first came to my attention when he won the Edgar Award for A COLD RED SUNRISE, one of his novels starring Russian police inspector Porfiry Rostnikov. And when I devoured that novel, I went back to read the earlier titles in the series. Stuart is extremely prolific -- writing other series, short stories, non-series thriller novels (some of which have been made into movies); but the Rostnikov novels are really something special, and they have inspired critical comparisons with Martin Cruz Smith's GORKY PARK. So if you liked Arkady Renko in that wonderful thriller, then I can definitely recommend the Rostnikov novels to you.

--Joe Blades, Associate Publisher
