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?

I had lost my first edition of Gorky Park, a copy I bought back in 1981 after reading a favorable review. I was not disappointed, and Ardady Renko remains one of my favorite detective series' characters and Martin Cruz Smith one of my favorite authors. I was going to a book signing for his latest Renko book, Tatiana, and I found a first edition Gorky Park to bring along through the magic of Alibris. Mr Smith was kind enough to sign it for me. I will treasure it. Thank you Alibris.

A true classic!
What a book! This story stands to be a classic. This first book about Arkady Renko sparks the start of what may be one of the best fictional creation I've come across. A definite collector's treasure!
