With wife Sarah (still recuperating from recent surgery), they descend upon Yalta for a few
days rest and relaxation. Of course, in this Stuart Kaminsky thriller
(“Rostnikov's Vacation”), “RandR” is not about to happen. A fellow policeman iskilled
within hours of their arrival at Yalta--and Rostnikov is off and running.
Back in Moscow, his assistants (Tkach and Karpo) are investigating crimes dealing with
computers and psychos! Kaminsky is a master in this series, one not to be missed if
international intrigue, human compassion, and sheer excitement are desired!
