In Wolves Eat Dogs, beloved detective Arkady Renko enters the privileged world of Russia's new billionaire class. The grandest of them all, a self-made powerhouse named Pasha Ivanov, has apparently leapt to his death from the palatial splendor of his ultra-modern Moscow condominium. While there are no signs pointing to homicide, there is one troubling and puzzling bit of evidence...in Ivanov's bedroom closet, there's a mountain of salt.

Ivanov's demise ultimately leads Renko on a journey through Chernobyl's netherworld. The crimes he uncovers and the secrets they reveal about the New Russia, make for a tense, unforgettable adventure. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “An engrossing mystery with a satisfyingly slam-bang conclusion.” 

    Boston Herald

  • “Smith has a keen eye for the comical quirks of modern-day Russia—its chaotic roadways, voracious appetite for post-communist luxuries, and evolving ethics…And this story’s bleakly beautiful Ukrainian backdrop nicely complements the desperate hope of Renko’s task. Still, the greatest strength of Wolves Eat Dogs…is its characters, especially Arkady Renko, who despite his lugubrious nature continues to show a heart as expansive and unfathomable as the Siberia steppe.” 

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “This novel demonstrates Cruz Smith’s remarkable ability to meld character with landscape, and if Renko seems to find a shred of hope in the end, we know not to turn our dosimeters off quite yet.” 

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “As always, Smith imagines a Russia that is sad, broken, and, somehow, romantically irresistible.” 

    Kirkus Reviews
