Item description for Dispatch from a Cold Country (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries) (Colin Burke Mysteries) by Robert Cullen...

Recalled to Washington and riding an editor's desk, journalist Colin Burke itches to be back in Russia, chasing stories. A friend's murder is hardly the cause he would have wished for, so it's with a mix of guilt and eagerness that he picks up his reporter's notebook again, and heads for St. Petersburg. Poking around the seedy, familiar corridors of Russian politics and police bureaucracy, Burke is in his element, but as the threads of the murder seem increasingly to lead to the Hermitage -- one of the world s great museums -- he may be out of his depth. Incredibly, someone seems to have been planning to steal some of the museum s priceless paintings, but Burke knows nothing about art. Fumbling his way into instant expertise, he could have the story that will cap his career. But there's a good chance that he'll get capped instead.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dispatch from a Cold Country (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries) (Colin Burke Mysteries)?

Lots of Color  Apr 11, 2002
This is another exciting book from Mr. Cullen. He really has a distinctive way a describing the dark beauty of Russia and getting into the heads the Russian every man. The story has a great story line and he peppers the book with interesting sub plots that keep you interested. With that said I did think the love story sub plot could have been left out. I am convinced that long ago some book publishing executive wrote a set of rules which dictated that all action thrillers need some kind of sub plot love story. Then one just seemed to me to be thrown in by the author to placate someone other then the author thinking it was an intricate part of the story. Overall a good book, if you have liked his other work then you will enjoy this one.
Fabulous read and great local color of St. Petersburg  Jul 4, 1999
Cullen writes an engrossing thriller that does full justice to the beauty and color of St. Petersburg, and he knows the Hermitage well. I was a Fulbright professor in St. Petersburg in 1998 (back again in summer 1999) and I was in and out of the offices and galleries he mentions, and so have a special appreciation for how well he captured the look, feel, and temperament of that great museum.

There is, however, a stark error in the Kirkus plot summary of this book: The subject painting in the novel is NOT the Madonna Litta at all, but instead is a (fictional) painting by Leonardo da Vinci of Leda.
