Martin Cruz Smith

Martin Cruz Smith’s parents were jazz musicians but as a student he realised that his own talent was for writing. He gave up sociology and travelled in Europe before taking a job as a tabloid reporter. In New York he edited a men’s magazine before publishing his groundbreaking Soviet thriller, Gorky Park. When Martin Cruz Smith’s publishers declined his idea for a story about a Russian detective, they unwittingly let slip one of the global publishing successes of the past 25 years. His character Moscow policeman Arkady Renko has become a crime favourite.
