    One thought on “Fall of a Cosmonaut”

    1. Stuart Kominsky's ace detective, Porfiry Rostnikov, continues to be a favorite sleuth of mine. Similar to his previous work, there are parallel cases being solved here, by various members of his Department.We are in post-Cold War Russia, and the men and women of the Department are adjusting to their new "democracy" with varying success.The secret that the Cosmonoaut is hiding, and which is resulting in himself and other 'nauts being hunted down/killed, is rather mundane, that is to say, it is ha [...]

    2. Detection and crime solving again takes a back seat to character and descriptions of life in a changing Russia. For Rostinkov he is again handed what seems to be a near impossible case to resolve (emphasis on resolve and not solve). Three years earlier a cosmonaut had radioed in to ground control to tell Rostinkov if he didn't make it back. The cosmonaut returned, but now he has disappeared. And memebers of his crew and the replacement crew are having accidents.At the same time Sasha and Elena h [...]

    3. This is the 13th in the series of police novels by Stuart Kaminsky. The main character is Chief Inspector Porfiry Rostnikov, a senior detective in Moscow. He is one legged, is an accomplished weight lifter and is an amateur plumber in the apartment building where he and his wife share an apartment with a woman he had arrested and her 2 granddaughters. He leads a team of five detectives and in this novel they are working three cases. The stories are interesting and the characters throughout are l [...]

    4. Rostnikov is betting more poetic, philosophical, artistic, imaginative etc etc than ever in this book. Perhaps its the influence of the central mystery--who killed the cosmonaut and why. The regular characters are so well fleshed out by this time in the series that I can't help but cast them for a movie, which, if it were made, would no doubt be a big disappointment. Also, because by this time we know them so well, the repetitious descriptions, which until now have not bothered me, are beginning [...]

    5. The quality of these books drops later in the series, in part I think because the Soviet backdrop is replaced, as it was in real life, by chaos. I also find the numerous inconsistencies (in dates, characters' story lines, etc.) more distracting. By this point however I really like the characters and want to see what happens to them - had Kaminsky not died, I would have continued to read about Rostnikov et al. indefinitely.

    6. I got about halfway through the book and decided it was too confusing to me and I didn't want to finish it. I don't think it is my mood, I think the book just didn't grab me. Plus life is too short to waste reading books you don't like or don't interest you!

    7. good why is russian govt trying to kill everyone who knows what happened on the mir? movie producer movie is stolen for ransom
