I Read it, liked it but forgot the plot after all these years. This was his first book tht I remember and a surprise best-seller. ( )

Reading this novel reminds me how different the world is in some ways - I remember when the Soviet Union seemed an institution that would never go away - and yet how much the same things still are. Mr. Smith creates a sense of the foreign, at least for me, in a character that lives a life I can only sort of imagine. And the detective work is compelling. ( )

Triple murder in Moscow, investigator Arkady Renko battles KGB, FBI, NY - fur dealer.

A triple murder in a Moscow amusement center: three corpses found frozen in the snow, faces and fingers missing. Chief homicide investigator Arkady Renko is brilliant, sensitive, honest, and cynical about everything except his profession. To identify the victims and uncover the truth, he must battle the KGB, FBI, and New York police as he performs the impossible--and try to stay alive doing it.

This was a great whodunit. I read it when it first came out though, so I might have been a bit callow.Try it and see for yourself. ( )
