Curiously, the only mention I found of this joint venture in Wikipedia is in an article about Polar Star, a murder mystery by Martin Cruz Smith. Martin is one of my favorite writers. He wrote Three Stations and Stalin's Ghost, which I have read, and Gorky Park, which I have heard of (it's famous), but never read.
