Jeremy Bobb provides an exceptional narration of Smith's latest Arkady Renko procedural. Detective Renko, who originally appeared in GORKY PARK, is tasked with finding a missing woman who may have been persecuted for her anti-government political stance. Meanwhile, Renko is facing the loss of Tatiana, his lover, who has left him. Renko is also facing early stages of Parkinson's disease, a development that forces him to question his purpose in life. The action occurs against the backdrop of Putin's aggressive moves toward Ukraine, giving a tone of real-time urgency to the proceedings. Bobb's performance embraces the audiobook's noir tone, providing a weathered, world-weary pacing to the proceedings while deftly handling the various Russian accents. He gives the characters both the requisite hardened outlook and heart. S.P.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2023]
