    I cannot help but wonder whether it’s a coincidence that I just discovered Martin’s Arkady Renko series. Russia is still in the news for the wrong reasons, and here I am, reading about a detective in the Soviet Union.

    The series reminds me of all those WWII-era mystery novels I’ve read over the years. They always entertain me because they prioritize the lives of ordinary people. The World War is just a backdrop.

    Martin does something similar in the Renko novels. He gives us an idea of how the people behind the iron curtain lived. I don’t know whether or not his information is valid. But until I actually research the Soviet Union, which won’t happen anytime soon, I will take Martin at his word.
