They lay peacefully, even artfully, under their thawing crust of ice, the centre one on its back, hands folded as if for a religious funeral, the other two turned, arms out under the ice like flanking emblems on embossed writing paper. They were wearing ice skates. Pribluda shouldered Arkady aside. 'When I am satisfied questions of state security are not involved, then you begin.' It did indeed become a triple murder investigation for Chief Investigator Arkady Renko. Three corpses had been found in Moscow. But why the horrific mutilations? And why had they been buried in the snows of Gorky Park?

Gritty Russian noir, a bitter and tangled thriller like noone writes any more. Even those who have seen the film should pull up a loaf of black bread and some pepper vodka, and settle in to a highly enjoyable read.

This dark police procedural crime thriller is set in the Soviet Union during the early 1980's.

A compelling mystery that grabs you from the opening scene of three faceless bodies hidden in the snow of one of Moscow's popular parks. The writing is brilliant. A must read!

A solid mystery novel that had me hooked. I'm now into the whole series and can't wait for the latest release in 2013.
