When a former Russian advisor stands accused of murdering a female citizen in Cuba, Inspector Porfiry Rostnikov is dispatched to the former Soviet Unions one-time ally on a criminal plomatic mission. With a watchful KGB agent on his tail Rostnikov must grapple with his cunning Cuban counterpart as well as a perplexing murder scenario, to save face for his mother country.

Kaminsky gets Russia right, and Cuba right, but best of all he gets his superb cop Rostnikov altogether right yet another time. Bravo! -Ed McBain The Soviet Union is dead, and Russian society has been fractured into a thousand pieces.

Highly recommended

Kaminsky's characters are always run true. One never has to guess what his characters will do -- they will do what their personality demands of them. I never fail to enjoy any of his novels. This one was as good as all the rest.

I've bought and read every one of Kaminsky's Inspector Porfiry Rostnikov's novels I could find; mostly they're a joy to read. "Hard Currency," however, at least to my mind, is not up to the quality of the others. It has the feel (including actual copy from at least one other of his books) of being done in a rush with not nearly as much attention to the loving detail and inventiveness Kaminsky normally provides.

As usual Inspector Rostnikov keeps you guessing to the end of the book. Thoroughly entertaining and engrossing and the characters change as in real life. Excellent.

Loved this series in hard cover. I am now treating myself to one per month on my Kindle. They are even better the second time around.

I love this whole series, the characters, the stories, the language. Kaminsky shows heart on every page and can turn a phrase with surprising agility. I'm only sorry that I didn't discover these novels earlier.

Well written. Characters are three dimensional,
