This review is from: Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia Volume II: v. II (Hardcover)
Having stumbled across this book & its author through the film Eastern Promise I have been totally captivated by the detail and insight that it gives to a world and life style of a time gone by but still very much alive.
I've just purchased volume 3 which I currently have sat on my bedside table to read but having so far enjoyed volume 2 so much I think I will be giving this a read again before venturing into the third volume.
I cannot rate this book high enough, though this is on its way out of print quicker than any book I've read before and is a testiment to the author who has spent an entire life documenting such an interesting and very much overlooked topic of communist russia.
Worth every single penny.... and then some!
