Abridged EditionOne thing I think you'll notice about Martin Cruz Smith - he creates fantastic scenarios in his books! I mean, you can almost feel the icy water, see the towering waves, feel the rocking of the ship, the smell of the confined spaces below decks (you Navy guys know all about that, and you ladies will have to imagine your head in the (what's that thingy you put dirty clothes in?)). He has a unique ability to give you enough of a description so you can almost picture it in your mind! That ability has always impressed me! Just wish I could write like that.This book is a sequel to Gorky Park (for those of you familiar with that one), and Arkady Renko returns as the main character. In Gorky Park, Renko was on the run from his enemies through Siberia. We catch up with him in his "ultimate" hiding place, the "slime-line" in the bowels of a huge Russian fish processing factory ship working for the Americans in the Bering Sea. This is a setting that is about as bleak and unforgiving as you can imagine..........a woman is murdered ..................and the story begins.I enjoyed it!Wiley Coyote
