I have adored every word of Smith's Arkady Renko series and have read, and loved two of his other novels. Saying all that I had high expectations for Rose. It not only met them, but far exceeded them. I felt transported to this dark English village and felt dirty with coal duat the whole time. The mystery or should I say mysteries were beautifully done! Fantastic! A+

It's been a year since I read Rose. As I return to purchase a replacement copy for the one I must have loaned, I still recall aspects of the chilling setting, the complex characters, the intriguing subplots and intricate dialog of this novel as vividly as if I had read it yesterday. This is a masterfully spun tale that will, like coal dust, get under your skin and stay there all the way to its remarkable ending.

I like Martin Cruz Smith's writings, mostly the Renko series, but Rose is a good book and I put it on my Nook. It's interesting with a surprise ending (and I'm usually really good at figuring out surprises). I cannot think of a book of his that has not been entertaining, good reading, well written, and interesting. But I'm probably prejudiced.

Set in the late 19th century, Rose is a bit different than other Martin Cruz Smith novels. However once his new characters are fleshed out & the English mining town of Wigen given shape the story builds continually. Plenty of mystery, excitement & a hot love interest keep the pages turning! Enjoy!

I love historical fiction! This book takes you deep down into the real coal mining town of Wigan, England. Our hero is suffering from malaria he contracted in his beloved Africa. He will do anything to return to the gold mines of Africa, including solve the mysterious dissapearance of a person of interest for the coal mine owner. This book has it all.... murder, mystery, history, romance and lots of twists and turns! The nitty gritty life of a coal miner will appeal to male as well as female readers! Check it out!

Of the several Martin Cruz Smith novels I've read, this is my favorite. The setting, a coal mining town in Victorian England, may sound drab, almost 'Dickens'ish', but Cruz draws you in. The plot is tight and well thought out, the prose sensual, and the symbolism intertwines throughout the book. For instance, as you read, pay attention to Cruz's thoughtful intertwining of roses and the color red throughout the book. This book would make a fantastic movie. It certainly makes for a wonderful weekend read.

This is one of my favorite books. I have red it in no time. Story it self is very interesting for the time it was written on. Not may people enjoy knowing about 1872 and English colonies in Africa. Life of miners was always hard and this book proves it even more. Investigation of missing Reverend takes us in to unavoidable romance between ¿pit girl¿ and a mining engineer/explorer. Blair is a character that lacks attractive qualities but still manages to capture readers mind. Romance, mystery and politics nothing is missing form this book. Excellent read. Enjoy

Like Renko, the central character of Martin Cruz Smith's Soviet mysteries, Jonathan Blair endears himself to us in spite of his lack of attractive qualities. His curiosity and tenacity drive us with him toward discovering the evils within the deep, dark, hellish coal mines. Not all the characters are well defined, but there is a rich tapestry of local color against which the mystery plays out. I read it twice in a row to capture the complexity of the narrative.
