RED SQUARE - Martin Cruz Smith

Very slow to start, boring actually, but it picks up and becomes a very good thriller.  Set in 1991 when the Soviet Union was imploding the murder of a black marketeer gets Investigator Renko involved.

The usual corruption that seemed to be part of everyday Soviet life is evident, the Russian mafia's all here and a love interest, worth reading if prefer the " thinking man" type hero.
