In 1981, in Moscow’s Gorky Park, three bodies are uncovered as the winter snow thaws and Police Chief Investigator Arkady Renko reluctantly takes the case and attempts to solve the triple murder.

It rapidly becomes apparent that nothing is as it seems, and Arkady can never be sure of who to trust, either professionally or personally. The possibility of betrayal is ever present and Arkady realises that the investigation may end up costing him his life.

Well! I am not entirely sure what to make of this book. It’s a classic and I can see why. The plotting is intricate and the characterisation, especially of Arkady is very well done. Being set during the Cold War does date it, especially when it comes to relations between Russia and America, which is an important factor in this story, but that’s fine. It’s a novel set at a very defined point in the history between two countries and as it was also written in 1981, it feels authentic.

However, while the writing draws you in, it’s definitely a twisty tale which requires concentration. At one point I wished I had started taking notes, because I did have to sometimes go back a few pages and remind myself of what had taken place. So it’s not the easiest read in terms of plot, but the prose itself is a delight. If this genre is your kind of thing, I would recommend you check this out. ( )

Wonderful. I will be reading this again in the not too distant future. What a pleasure and interesting and evocative and, well, a love story. ( )

Enjoyed the movie so very much I had to go out and read the book. As much as I enjoyed the movie the book was so very much better. Wish I still had it as would enjoy reading it again. Unfortunately already have too many to read that it would not be realistic to buy it. That is unless I could find a signed first edition first printing copy. Would be a great addition of my library.

A gripping, subtle crime novel set initially in Russia. No many clues at first,
but with the investigator Arkady Renko powers of deduction, the vital truth
is gleaned along the way.
I absorbed a bit of Russian history, geography, lore through reading this book.
