As changes occur in Russia, many high-tech spy and intrigue stories become dated, but Kaminsky's mysteries with Inspector Rostnikov have a timeless, enduring quality like the character himself. Mark Hammer's portrayal of Rostnikov brilliantly enhances the text. The inexorable pace Hammer chooses is perfect for the police inspector who believes "You catch more with patience than with speed." The interplay of recent and long-forgotten histories is narrated with the right amount of change in vocal pitch and cadence. Hammer's interpretation gives the listener an interest as compelling as Rostnikov's in understanding the riddles of the plot. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 92]
