THE SILVER BONE Samson Kolechko Investigates, Book 1

by | Read by Josh Bloomberg

Mystery & Suspense • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Josh Bloomberg's narration is a fine match of text and voice. The tumultuous events that took place in Kyiv/Kiev during the Russian Civil War (1917-1922) are interwoven throughout this exciting historical mystery by Kurkov, who has been called Ukraine's most celebrated novelist. The story concerns a young engineer turned police detective named Samson Kolechko and his investigation of two murders, a mysterious silver femur, and a strange tailored garment. Add to this a budding romance with one Nadezhda, and the entire story is quite delightful. Bloomberg uses credible Ukrainian/Russian/German accents for the dialogue. His inflections and pacing are all perfect. This is supposed to be the first installment of a series, and one hopes that Bloomberg will narrate the future installments.
