George Guidall has the rasp of experience in his voice. So when he opens with burial duty, we're there. Down into the subway for the second plot, involving fatal stabbings. The third story line is built around the Naked Cossack, a cynical hate-mongering musician. Guidall can play a full cast, but even his genius is frustrated by Kaminsky's omnipotent narrator who jumps from plot to plot to plot. This is the fourteenth mystery starring Moscow cop Porfiry Rostnikov. "Parked cars wore white snow caps that came to a peak and trees became festive with whipped cream leaves," writes Edgar Award winner Kaminsky in this oil painting of a novel. Fans will be delighted.
