Did anyone check around Crawford, Texas?

The Russians are onto us low-down lake-thieving Americans.

American lake-jackers struck again, leaving the Russian village of Bolotnikovo high and dry.

Martin Cruz Smith's Soviet detective, Arkady Renko, has been brought in as an expert investigator. He speculates (I refrained from saying "specu-lakes") that the lake may have been sent to Texas or Arizona. On the other hand, Area 51, Nevada, may have the necessary technology, and Minnesota might be a better place to hide it.

If Renko can't find it, Paul Volcker will be on the case, as soon as he locates the sinkhole in Turtle Bay.
