Synopsis

Wolves Eat Dogs by Martin Cruz Smith

All night earthmovers tore at the old city and dug widening pools of light to raise a modern, vertical Moscow more like Houston or Dubai. It was a Moscow that Pasha Ivanov had helped to create, a shifting landscape of tectonic plates and lava flows and fatal missteps...So why is Pasha Ivanov - one of Russia's richest oligarch's - lying dead on the pavement outside his luxury high-rise apartment, his death an apparent open-and-shut suicide? Senior Investigator Arkady Renko has never been one to take evidence at face value and when Ivanov's wardrobe is found to be full of salt - and contaminated with radioactive cesium - his investigations take him to the notorious exclusion zone, the area around Chernobyl deserted and forgotten for almost two decades. "The Zone" is a place of mystery, danger - and sometimes unimaginable beauty. But everyone risks their life just by being there...
