Terrific

The reading is top notch, almost a performance, with Russian accents and different mannerisms and Arkady Renko's tired cynicism perfectly captured. The text, of course, is brilliant. For those unfamiliar with Martin Cruz Smith, this is the latest in his series about Moscow detective Arkady Renko, who has worked cases on a fishing ship, in Moscow, in Cuba, and in this installment in the ashes of the Chernobyl nuclear accident. It's a terrific read.

Abridged versions stink!

Difficult to follow and unable to create the proper environment. Abridged versions stink!
