Old Hunting Grounds and Other Stories by Yuri Kaza&hellip by Yuri Kazakov
Old Hunting Grounds (purchased through Amazon),
I thought, as Hackney through and through, I must be mad to even think of reading this book, but the translator is a friend of a friend of a friend, so I thought I would give it a go, although I have no interest in hunting and not that much more in 'nature' further than Victoria Park! How wrong can you get! This book is beautiful, beautiful, and its stories are about the PEOPLE living in communities that are almost enclosed by rivers and forests as well as the sea.

I could not put this book down. Put off at first perhaps by the constant 'thinking' of Gaby the central character, but the story quickly expands. A marvellous page-turner that held me all the way through, although I have been well trained by the Scandinavian detectives and thought I had worked it all out! Durrant of course still had a trick or two up her sleeve and I was left more than a little breathless when I finally did put it down.

Read it, you will not be disappointed.
