An Arkady Renko Novel
Martin Cruz Smith

In Smith’s latest Arkady Renko novel (after Three Stations, 2010), the Russian investigator seeks the truth about a young reporter’s apparent suicide. Journalist Tatiana Petrovna was one of the last occupants of a Kaliningrad apartment building that developers wanted to raze. When she fell six stories to her death, authorities were quick to rule the tragedy a suicide. Renko suspects otherwise, and gradually begins to unravel a mystery as complex and dangerous as modern Russia itself.
