"Gorky Park"

Right now I'm in the middle of reading the book, "Gorky Park," by Martin Cruz Smith.
You may recall a movie was adapted from the book.

This is an awesome read.

Not only is it a great murder mystery -- the formula storyline has been repeated over and over again -- but the prose makes this a fun read.

The author is great at weaving the surroundings into the book. He writes about different areas of Moscow and other cities, towns, the countryside in the former U.S.S.R. It's beautiful.

Now I really want to go to Moscow and those lands formerly of the U.S.S.R.
