"Arkady Renko, one of the iconic investigators of contemporary fiction, has survived the cultural journey from the Soviet Union to the New Russia, only to find the nation as obsessed with secrecy and brutality as was the old Communist dictatorship. In Tatiana, the melancholy hero cynical, analytical, and quietly subversive unravels a mystery as complex and dangerous as modern Russia itself."--Amazon.com

One of my favorites!
Smith is a wonderful writer and researcher and combined with the characters and the great Renko- unbeatable.
If this the final Renko- it's a good ending but I'll miss him.

One of the charms of the Arkady Renko series of novels is that they tell you so much not only about Russia’s greatest cities, but also its regions, Tver oblast in “Three Stations” and now Kaliningrad in “Tatiana”. Kaliningrad is unique among Russian oblasts in being an exclave that borders on Poland and Lithuania, but not on the rest of the Russian Federation, and reading this book made me want to visit this unique and fascinating part of Russia.
The back cover gives part of a review from the Washington Post that suggests the Tatiana on the title is modelled on Anna Politkovskaya. While true, admirers of the great Russian journalist who pick this book up thinking it will be a disguised biography of Ms. Politkovskaya or an account of her own brutal murder will be disappointed, as the journalist Tatiana Petrovna of the novel is a quite different woman who meets a quite different fate.

I loved 'Wolves Eat Dogs', but this is nowhere in the same league.
