Tatiana Petrova, giornalista d'inchiesta coraggiosa e temeraria ha lasciato Mosca per un misterioso incarico da più di un mese. Tatiana è nota per le sue sparizioni durante le inchieste più impegnative, ma Arkady Renko, leggendario investigatore di Mosca e amante occasionale della donna, è sicuro che ci sia qualcosa che non va. Intraprende quindi un lungo e pericoloso viaggio per trovarla. Dalle rive del lago Baikal alla fatiscente Chita, Renko scopre che Tatiana sta seguendo l'ascesa del dissidente politico Mikhail Kuznetsov, un golden boy della moderna ricchezza petrolifera e il primo a rappresentare una vera minaccia al dominio di Putin in oltre un decennio. In una terra di sciamani e notti glaciali, ricchi oligarchi petroliferi del nord e mostri marini che si dice si aggirino nel lago più profondo del mondo, Renko ha bisogno di tutto il suo ingegno per salvare Tatiana.

What a joy to see the return of the iconic Arkady Renko in his 9th outing by Martin Cruz Smith set in the terror and tyranny of Putin's Russia, symbolised by the bear, a brutal corrupt kleptocracy of oligarchs, dirty politics, torture and murder, where any threats to the regime are dealt with a cold Leggi tutto

There hasn’t been a new Renko tale since Leggi tutto
Dull, lacking political and social atmosphere and no action. Time for Arkady Renko to retire. On the plus side, it is a short book.
Bolot was too much a force of nature to be a mere factotum or even an entrepreneur. Bolot was an iceberg, all bright surfaces and hidden depths, and like an iceberg he rotated now and then to show a new face… The European brown bear plays a pivotal role in The Siberian Dilemma , which opens with polic Leggi tutto
The Siberian Dilemma is the 9th book in the Arkady Renko series by Martin Cruz Smith. This series is as old as I am, yet this is the first book I have read! I found it worked well as a stand alone but I would still like to read the older books. Arkady is an investigator working for the Prosecutor's
