4.0 out of 5 stars Great book - disappointing audio version March 11 2007
Format:Audio CD
I have always enjoyed Martin Cruz Smith's books, especially the Arkardy Renko stories and this one is no exception. I read and enjoyed the book before I listened to the audio version. My advice to those who want to listen to it is - don't. I don't know why Simon & Schuster did not ask Stephen Lang to do the reading. He read Havana Bay and to my mind is the definitive voice of these books - to the extent that when I re read Havana Bay, his is the voice I hear. Not so with this reading, the pronunciation tends to be sloppy, he pronounces "Arkady" with the emphasis on the wrong syllable. It is very irritating and gets in the way of the story. A good reading adds something to the story. A bad one is a barrier.

So, enjoy the book and leave the audio version. This story focuses on the events at Chernobyl both at the time of the meltdown and the subsequent fallout (no pun intended). Arkady, as usual is at odds with his superiors and is sent off to Chernobyl mainly to get rid of him. Being Arkady though he will get to the bottom of the mystery whatever the odds and it is all resolved in a satisfactory fashion. The area around Chernobyl seems to be benefiting from the absence of people and is a fascinating background to the story. I would give it five stars if the audio version was worth listening to.

4.0 out of 5 stars A return to form March 18 2007
This is a solid return of a master. If you thought Cruz faltered in his last outing this will make your nights longer and better. It is a stay-up late noir thriller. The melancholy Russian investigator struggles against an oppressive and corrupt bureaucracy while dealing with the mystery of a suicide perhaps murder in the midst of the living hell that is today's Chernobyl. In the exclusion zone of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster where the dead and the dying are seperated by inches and an ever ticking dosimeter measuring radiation the plodding but true Renko doesn't deviate.

This is a mystery for today--shocking in that it was written before the murder/assassination in London of a former Russian agant--and a foreshadowing of a bleak world or tomorrow. Worth a good look and a read.

Smith has created a hero that I cannot let go. Renko is the broken heart that has no cure, you just ache with him throughout every novel. He is the Russian Dark Knight whose only armour is a suffocating resolve that envelopes all who come in contact. I recommend a new reader starts their journey at Gorky Park.
