Mystery & Suspense • 10.9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

Moscow mobsters, illegal dogfights, corrupt cops and the disappearance of a Russian politician provide a fascinating backdrop for Kaminsky's latest police thriller featuring Porfiry Rostnikov. This no-frills reading by Alan Sklar shows us the sinister underbelly of post-Soviet Russia. Sklar's pronunciation of Russian names is believable, and his vocal characterizations are effective. But his steady narrative voice--together with the flat style Kaminsky uses when writing this series--renders this risky company for long car rides. Nevertheless, the team of Kaminsky, Sklar, and Rostnikov delivers an exciting, and often tender, novel. S.E.S. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 99]
