Martin Cruz Smith's Three Stations is now available on audio for only $14.99!
For the last three decades, beginning with the trailblazing Gorky Park, Inspector Arkady Renko has captivated listeners with detective tales set in Russia. Now, in Three Stations, Renko’s skills are put to their most severe test.
Though he has been technically suspended from the prosecutor’s office for once again turning up unpleasant truths, Renko strives to solve a last case: the death of an elegant young woman whose body is found in a construction trailer on the perimeter of Moscow’s main rail hub. It looks like a simple drug overdose to everyone—except to Renko, whose examination of the crime scene turns up some inexplicable clues, most notably an invitation to Russia’s premier charity ball. Renko uncovers a web of death, money, madness, and a kidnapping that threatens the woman he is coming to love and the lives of children he is desperate to protect. In Three Stations, Martin Cruz Smith produces a complex and haunting vision of Russia’s emergent secret underclass of street urchins, greedy thugs, and a bureaucracy still paralyzed by power and fear.
