The window was open, but it brought no breeze, only shrill voices of boys arguing on Balaklava Prospekt two floors below uder and more demanding. Sofiya didn’t want to listen to them, and she didn’t want to read her dark brown shorthand book; nor did she want to go to sleep or go for a walk. There was nothing she wanted to do, but what she wanted to do least was sit in that smothering dark room where she knew before she looked up that the walls of the living room were expanding. Kaminsky (1934–2009) was one of the most prolific crime fiction authors of the last four decades. Born in Chicago, he spent his youth immersed in pulp fiction and classic cinema-two forms of popular entertainment which he would make his life’s work. After college and a stint in the army, Kaminsky wrote film criticism and biographies of the great actors and directors of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Inspector Rostnikov is a wonderful character with a strong moral compass, but what makes this series compelling to me is the unvarnished picture of how the everyday citizen coped with life in Russia during the latter part of the 20th century before the Iron Curtain crumbled. Rostnikov was an official of considerable influence, but still found life difficult and had to work around suspicious bureaucrats in order to complete investigations. His great physical strength made him unique too, but this was matched with his stubborn will to do right by the individual...even if was not good for The State. I recommend starting with the first book in this series in case you get hooked. I think most will.

The late Stuart Kaminsky was a master of many genres, including T.V. and film scripts. He wrote the Rockford Files for television, and a series of "gumshoe" novels set in 1940's Hollywood. With this book, from a series starring an aging Russian police detective, Kaminsky shows that he is a master of plotting and character development . Guaranteed that you'll want to read this whole series and more of his works.
doesnt Do You
The series of books with Rostnikov, set in Moscow are superb...I am a mystery addict and thought Id never find such an amazing series as this....all great...the characters, the plots but importantly the description of life in Moscow at the time (60s 70s and before) is so captivating I assumed he had lived there and was Russian (not)

Have enjoyed all of the Rostnikov novels. Kaminsky's books stand close to Koestler's writings - more entertainment and less politics - but always enjoyable and one assumes, an accurate portrait of life in the Soviet Union. Rostnikov is a strong, stoic hero and the plot here and in the other books in the series is a well-crafted mystery. There is something about the way the plot moves that seems spot-on.

Kaminsky is amazing with his Russian stories. He knows the history, politics, and expressions that make this book more of an adventure in history. I learn a great deal and enjoy the mysteries involved. Loved the book.
Really enjoy all the Rostnikov stories.
