Wolves Eat Dogs - Martin Cruz SmithThe return of Renko in a thriller that goes nucleur.... (702 words)
by sparkymarky1973 - written on 29/09/09 (Very useful, 22 readings)
this is a bad book, because it is not, only that there is very little here that left me feeling inspired! I am not a big fan of Martin Cruz Smith s writing style either and some of the dialogue in this novel often feels a bit stilted and forced.

He was a ...
Havana Bay - Martin Cruz SmithThe crumbling charms of Cuba (491 words)

initial suspicion and resentment towards ‘the Russian’, slowly comes to realise that beneath the shabby fašade hides a razor sharp brain and an interesting man. Cruz Smith is excellent in building up atmosphere. He builds and almost tangible picure of the decaying Havana of brightly coloured buildings crumbling to dust, decades-old American cars still going strong, beautifu l girls selling themselves to the flesh hungry tourists and above them all the almost mythical figure of Castro, never mentioned by name but whose presence is everywhere. The usual alienation of Renko ...
