Summary
"Inspector Porfiry Petrovich Rostnikov is a Russian bear of a man. Known as "The Washtub, " he is an imperturbable one-legged policeman who is also one of the last honest civil servants in a very dishonest post-Soviet Russia. A sharp and caring policeman who has survived pogroms and politburos, Rostnikov works hard to solve crimes. He works even harder to keep his coworkers and family intact and mostly safe in spite of the new (some would say, disguised variations on the old) powers that rule his world." "In People Who Walk in Darkness, Inspector Rostnikov is commanded to make the long journey from Moscow to the frozen wasteland of Siberia to investigate a murder at a diamond mine. There he encounters gulag conditions, rampant drunkenness, and the ramblings of madmen talking about ghost children. His compatriots track the smuggled diamonds to Kiev and discover a vast conspiracy that not only has international repercussions but threatens them personally."--BOOK JACKET

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
