Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literally chilling. possibly the best Renko novel I enjoy Smith's novels enormously. Of the Renko series, there is not only the great fun of watching Renko battle both the bad guys and the government, but excellent settings and atmosphere. It is Polar Star that, set in arctic seas, brings a magnificent and literally chilling atmosphere on board a fishing factory ship to life. You might not think that such a limited setting would produce more than an ordinary mystery, but you may be pleasantly surprised by the novel. You may be unable to read this book in a cold room. As is Renko's forte, he overcomes the resistance of both the local bosses and the "bad guys" to unravel a fascinating situation.
