Inspector Rostnikov is a Russian bear of a man, an honest policeman in a very dishonest post-Soviet Russia. Known as “The Washtub,” Rostnikov is one of the most engaging and relevant characters in crime fiction, a sharp and caring policeman as well as the perfect tour guide to a changing (that is, disintegrating) Russia. Surviving pogroms and politburos, he has solved crimes, mostly in spite of the powers that rule his world. In People Who Walk in Darkness, Rostnikov travels to Siberia to investigate a murder at a diamond mine, where he discovers an old secret—and an even older personal problem. His compatriots head to Kiev on a trail of smuggled diamonds and kidnapped guest workers, and what they discover leads them to a vast conspiracy that not only has international repercussions but threatens them on a very personal level.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One of the better contemporary examples of an honest policeman navigating the shoals of a corrupt society…The particularly high stakes make this one of Rostnikov’s more exciting investigations.”  Publishers Weekly
“Kaminsky expertly ties all the disparate threads together into one satisfying read.” Library Journal
“A character-driven novel in which Rostnikov, a good man in a bad system, must battle corrupt leaders, canny criminals, and an entrenched bureaucracy, besides solving a mystery. Kaminsky is adept at navigating the shoals of post-Soviet Russia while delivering solid suspense and knockout characterization.” Booklist
