Some brief overview of book

Vampire bats Evil. Clever. Deadly.

Driven by blood-hunger across the American landscape, they bred and multiplied, unseen and unsuspected, each one a grisly messenger of death. No warm-blooded creature is safe from their thirst. Now, as darkness gathers, the sky is filled with the frantic motion, the maddening murmur of .

. . Nightwing. ts of Smiths novels also tend to be outsiders, viewing their surroundings with the wariness and sharpened attention of the displaced.

Smith spent his early writing years churning out potboilers, but with the 1977 publication of Nightwing, a bestseller about a plague of vampire bats that descends on a Hopi Indian reservation, Smith finally earned enough money to embark on the book he really wanted to write a detective novel set in Moscow. The book opens on a grisly scene three corpses are found frozen in Gorky Park, their faces and fingerprints obliterated. Homicide investigator Arkady Renko is put on the case, but his superiors seem less than eager to uncover the truth.

Dense, atmospheric and intricately plotted, Gorky Park drew comparisons to the spy novels of John le Carré. It was hugely successful, and was made into a movie starring William Hurt in 1983. Smith wrote a historical novel about the first atom bomb, Stallion Gate, before returning to Renkos checkered career as a detective in Polar Star and Red Square.

Though he bears some resemblance to the disaffected detective of noir tradition, the cynical, depressive Renko also exemplifies the Soviet dissident an outsider in his own country. Renko has been immensely popular with readers, some of whom were disappointed when Smiths 1996 novel Rose featured a new protagonist. But most Renko fans were won over by boozy, broke mining engineer Jonathan Blair, who arrives in an English coal-mining town on a mission to clear up the mysterious disappearance of the local curate.

Time magazine called Rose the most interesting and richly textured crime story of the season. One thing that sets Smiths work apart from other thrillers is the breadth and depth of his research. Before writing Gorky Park, the author visited Moscow, befriended exiled Russians and read scores of Russian newspapers and magazines in translation.

For Rose, he spent weeks in Lancashire talking with miners and visiting mines. Smiths recent works Havana Bay, in which Renko goes to Cuba, and December 6, set in Tokyo just before the bombing of Pearl Harbor, are equally fortified with research. Though hes best known for Gorky Park, now considered a classic in the spy thriller genre, Smith is clearly a writer with more than one trick up his sleeve.

I never thought I would just be doing Arkady books, he once told a Salon interviewer. I never intended to do any after Gorky Park, so I was pretty amazed when people asked me a few years ago what I was going to do now that the Cold War was over, as if I had been manufacturing missiles. I hate to be categorized.

The great thing about being a writer is that you are always recreating yourself. Good To Know Martin Cruz Smith was born Martin William Smith, but changed his middle name to his grandmothers surname, Cruz. Smith is the son of a white jazz musician and a Pueblo Indian jazz singer.

George Orwells The Road to Wigan Pier was one inspiration for Smiths novel Rose, set in the English coal-mining town of Wigan; another was a magazine article about the pit girls who flouted Victorian convention by wearing pants for their dangerous jobs above the mines.
