There s this concept in fantasy writing world building Sci fi too It s pretty self explanatory because these books are not taking place in our universe it s up to the author to give us all the details to paint the picture provide shading in just the right places ensure we can tell what we are supposed to be looking at Economics politics interpersonal relations language gender roles humor This can be done well emphasizing just here and embellishing just there so the empty spaces also fill in the canvas Or it can be done poorly cramming in everything and we wind up with Where s Waldo and no one can figure out what the hell is happening Martin Cruz Smith is a really good world builder I mean he s writing about a real place but it doesn t exist any as such so I don t think that makes his job any easier Granted I have no idea what life was like in the Soviet Union in the early 80s and maybe the author didn t either But this is a fully realized world a backdrop that adds a great deal of freshness to yet another twisty detective thriller Part of the reason Stieg Larsson books created a new genre in the US well sort of the Swedish location specific murder genre are his weirdly obsessive descriptions of the Swedish landscape which gave readers something to focus on while Lisbeth was shopping at Ikea Here the sense of place is as compelling with weather as miserable the plot and writing a lot betterArkady Renko is a great character He knows how the system works sees no problem in losing the files on a few murder cases to keep the crime rate low and the politicians happy Yet he refuses to follow the party line pisses off the wrong people follows leads when he has no vested interest not even a strong desire for justice He just wants to be right He is assigned to the case of three corpses found shot and mutilated in a famous park and it seems like he keeps working on it for no reason other than the fact that it violated his personal sensibility that it s uncouth to murder people in a place where people come to relax commiserate with friends maybe do some ice skatingThe plot is pretty complicated as you d expect but the trappings you ll see what I did there in a second are pretty fun Without giving too much away everything ties into the international fur trade and if Martin Cruz Smith is right it s a bloody business This is a Russian sableThis is a Russian sable fur coatimage error

Between watching the 80s era Soviet spies in FX s The Americans and tensions running high over Russian activity in the Ukraine it almost seems like Cold War never ended In fact because of a European consulting firm being brought into my workplace I m seeing Russians all over my building Hopefully things don t hit the point where I have to take to the hills and go all Red Dawn WolverinesWith all this red scare stuff going on it seemed like a great to time revisit this old favorite It s the early 80s and three bodies have been found under the snow in Moscow s Gorky Park with their fingertips removed and their faces peeled off to prevent identification Militia chief homicide investigator Arkady Renko finds an enemy of his from the KGB on the scene showing an interest in the bodies and that can mean nothing but trouble As he reluctantly begins to investigate the murders and discovers that one of the bodies was an American Renko wants nothing than to dump the case on the KGB since he s pretty sure they killed those people anyhow However Renko soon finds himself embroiled in schemes that may mean that he s the only who gets punished for trying to be a detective in a society that doesn t want to admit that crime exists at allSo the hook here is that it s a mystery set in the Soviet Union and even though that era has come and gone it s still incredibly interesting to get this peek behind the old Iron Curtain Martin Cruz Smith didn t just give us a procedural of how Soviet cops worked he also provided a view of an entire country living under a system where covering your own ass had become an art form and logic rarely entered in to it It s kind of like working for a corporation only a corporation can t ship you off to Siberia if you rock the boat too much Or at least they can t yet I probably shouldn t give them any ideasEven though this has plenty of Soviet political intrigue and an international aspect to it this doesn t feel like a spy story and that s mainly because of Arkady Renko During this reread I found myself comparing Renko to one of my favorite fictional detectives Matt Scudder because they re both pragmatic men who don t see the point in fighting a system that s inherently corrupt but there s a uiet streak of idealism in both that believes that some crimes have to be answered for Renko is stubborn with a sly talent for screwing up the plans of powerful people and there s a great worn down but not beaten element to the characterSmith also had excellent timing when he created Renko because through the next several decades he could use his detective to give us mysteries that are also glimpses of what it s been like for Russians through the fall of the Soviet Union and the aftermath today
