Reading an Inspector Rostnikov mystery is like being transported to Moscow to feel, smell, experience and endure Russian life. Kaminsky's characters include high Party officials, police, desperate Westernized youth, dissidents, and the man and woman on the street. Narrator Hammer is a master at portraying the various accents, classes and backgrounds. He evokes the mental or physical state of each character by modulation of his voice and breath. The audio version of Kaminsky's book offers an enhancement to a great piece of literature. Seldom do writer and narrator create a sense of time, place and situation so masterfully. S.G.B.
