    I am increasingly liking this series, primarily because of the recurring characters and the sense of place The plots can be meandering with missing resolutions, but are interesting choices that also lend reality to the sense of time, 1980s Moscow I liked yhe plot lines in this particular book butfound the resolutions too quick and easy without follow up Also, in the entire series the author switches from place, time, character to others very unexpectedly from one paragraph to thd next eith I am increasingly liking this series, primarily because of the recurring characters and the sense of place The plots can be meandering with missing resolutions, but are interesting choices that also lend reality to the sense of time, 1980s Moscow I liked yhe plot lines in this particular book butfound the resolutions too quick and easy without follow up Also, in the entire series the author switches from place, time, character to others very unexpectedly from one paragraph to thd next eith no transitions or chapter change It s disconcerting and pulls you out of the book shile you flounder around trying to figure out who is speaking acting

    I seem to have gotten into Russian detective fiction this year There s something about these isolated, uncorrupt cops trying to hold on to a belief in justice and morality in the face of pervasive resignation and hopelessness that feels very apt to this moment I learned a Russian phrase in this book nichevo, the Russian word for nothing, which conveyed resignation, stoicism, the idea that whatever might be the problem, you shouldn t let it get to you Life is too full of explosions One I seem to have gotten into Russian detective fiction this year There s something about these isolated, uncorrupt cops trying to hold on to a belief in justice and morality in the face of pervasive resignation and hopelessness that feels very apt to this moment I learned a Russian phrase in this book nichevo, the Russian word for nothing, which conveyed resignation, stoicism, the idea that whatever might be the problem, you shouldn t let it get to you Life is too full of explosions One cannot allow oneself to be destroyed by fear of them

    I am reading this series in Order, and find that like the Abe Lieberman mysteries, and the other Kaminsky books that I have read, that I thoroughly enjoy the characters and look forward to readingof the books in the series.

    By accident I read this slightly out of order I should have read this before A Cold Red Sunrise A few small things happen here that better explain where Rostnikov and his comrades are in relation to Red Sunrise.By the start of this installment in the series Porfiry has begun to mellow a little bit much like the inspector I ve me in the later books that I have read He sees himself as unfailingly Russian Someone who accepts that life is That life is not always fair, that the KGB has him on By accident I read this slightly out of order I should have read this before A Cold Red Sunrise A few small things happen here that better explain where Rostnikov and his comrades are in relation to Red Sunrise.By the start of this installment in the series Porfiry has begun to mellow a little bit much like the inspector I ve me in the later books that I have read He sees himself as unfailingly Russian Someone who accepts that life is That life is not always fair, that the KGB has him on its crap list, and he no longer has his senior inspector rank with the Procurator General s office nor will he Instead he finds himself standing in the rain trying to stop a man from jumping to his death from a statute of Gogol.As is usual in a Rostnikov story Sasha and Karpo each has their own cases going on, and this is not so much a mystery tale as one that involves the circus and the affairs that prevent Soviet policemen from doing their job Meanwhile Porfiry rediscovers his love for the circus.Much appreciated is how Mathilde humanizes Karpo a little during the course of his investigation Thankfully Blood and Rubles is several books away

    I am on a Stuart Kaminsky streak right now I will be so sad when I have run out of books.As I read each novel I becomefond of his three dimensional characters and his wonderful technique of keeping a few crimes mysteries going at once The endings are so tidy And I really enjoy sojourning safely in Russia, so aware of the work of the KGB but safely immune from it.Kaminsky s Porfiry Rostnikov series is all basically based in Russia, but at different times This book is set in Boris Yelt I am on a Stuart Kaminsky streak right now I will be so sad when I have run out of books.As I read each novel I becomefond of his three dimensional characters and his wonderful technique of keeping a few crimes mysteries going at once The endings are so tidy And I really enjoy sojourning safely in Russia, so aware of the work of the KGB but safely immune from it.Kaminsky s Porfiry Rostnikov series is all basically based in Russia, but at different times This book is set in Boris Yeltsin s era if I remember correctly It is interesting to read the different conditions the detectives must operate under yet human nature remains the same, whether for good or for ill.My favorite plot line in this book is the slowly redeeming relationship between Porfiry and a dying official in the KGB Their final interaction is very moving, and the delicate gamesmanship it s taken to get there is satisfyingly real.Recommended for all those Porfiry Rostnikov fans out there, of which there should be

    I saw this book at Savers the other day, and I though a mystery in the 80s Soviet Union would be pretty fun The book, is, in fact, three fairly loosely connected stories, and there is only 1 murder And a Suicide , rather than what the cover suggests.That said, they are really good short stories The three policemen that are the main characters are great, and Kaminsky captures the USSR at the time at least, what I picture perfectly So much so that I suspect cultural accuracy is perhaps embell I saw this book at Savers the other day, and I though a mystery in the 80s Soviet Union would be pretty fun The book, is, in fact, three fairly loosely connected stories, and there is only 1 murder And a Suicide , rather than what the cover suggests.That said, they are really good short stories The three policemen that are the main characters are great, and Kaminsky captures the USSR at the time at least, what I picture perfectly So much so that I suspect cultural accuracy is perhaps embellished or even sacrificed for movie stereotypes The mood works perfectly though, and since I don t really know exactly where real life Soviet traits end and the tropes begin, I was pretty amused Definitely could have been 5 stars as a short collection the fact that there were several massively awkward lead in lead out bits when going from one to another was really the only down side

    I really liked this book The descriptions of the bureaucratic infighting of the Moscow police force, the clique of circus performers, the dread of being interviewed by the KGB, kept me hooked It gave a view into life in communist Russia during the Gorbachev era It was also a pretty good mystery He rotated several plot lines without confusing me One of the characters surprised me when Oh I can t tell you I love surprises though Some reviewers said the book was too slow I can t believe I really liked this book The descriptions of the bureaucratic infighting of the Moscow police force, the clique of circus performers, the dread of being interviewed by the KGB, kept me hooked It gave a view into life in communist Russia during the Gorbachev era It was also a pretty good mystery He rotated several plot lines without confusing me One of the characters surprised me when Oh I can t tell you I love surprises though Some reviewers said the book was too slow I can t believe that How fast do you want a book to read Do you want it over it two pages Well to each his own I look forward to readingof this series
