Famous Russian writer and screenwriter, classic of the Soviet detective, author of popular novels and stories about the detective Lev Gurov.
Born June 18, 1933 in Moscow.
Received a higher education in law. Before becoming a professional writer, he worked for MUR for 10 years. He started from the very bottom: he guarded the suitcases of foreigners at train stations, was engaged in the arrest of pickpockets, stood at the buy-ups, catching stolen things. Then, having already become a big police chief, he argued that knowing the "street" helps in the work of an operative of any rank.
In 1963, with the rank of captain, he left the Ministry of Internal Affairs and took up literary work.
