Beginning with the discovery of 3 corpses buried under ice in Gorky Park, their faces devastated and fingertips cut to ensure unidentifiable, this book turned into an investigative direction that I could never have expected when I read the summary of this book. Every indication and deduction of the talented Inspector Arkady Renko unexpectedly leads to the discovery of a conspiracy involving the KGB, the FBI, the double spies, on the basis of the conflict between the Soviet Union. followed the communist regime and a mid-Cold War capitalist America.
In my eyes, this book is not merely a detective book anymore; The author has elevated it to a typical thriller, with unpredictable turns and revealed facts. There are many cinematic parts, I read and feel as if I were watching the movies of the story unfolding before my eyes, extremely nervous and genuine. After reading it, I know that the novel has been made into a movie, so I will probably arrange to watch the movie “Gorky Park” in the near future.
Personally, I still prefer reading detective novels about perverted psychopaths, it’s much more creepy and scary. Anyway, what author Martin Cruz Smith brought in “Gorky Park” is enough to please me, although there are still many places that are quite confusing and difficult to follow (probably related to This and that, I can only understand it).
