Ha! I almost put the Subject as Gorky Pork. LOL.

Anyway. I'm ordering Gorky Park by Martin Cruz Smith from the library. I know nothing about it. Anyone familiar with it?

First of a series set in Russia featuring detective Arkady Renko. 9 books so far, I believe. Great character, great series.

Read it years ago. I don't recall details, but I do recall enjoying it.

I LOVE GP.
It's one of my "island books" and I've probably read it a dozen times. Arkady is an amazingly complex and surprising character. The shit he goes through and puts up with is amazing. Of course, he's no picnic himself, but you know, he is the hero. I'll have to break out one of my copies!
