Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Back on the NYPD after a stint as a PI, Artie Cohen takes on a mysterious and ambiguous special assignment in his twisty, psychologically complex fifth outing, set during the winter of 2002. Obsessed and haunted by the 9/11 terrorist attack, as well as by his fraught Russian upbringing, Cohen has found a sliver of hope in his relationship with Billy Farone, his 12-year-old godson. When bloody clothing is found on a Brooklyn beach, Cohen instinctively fears for Billy's safety. Despite reassurances from Billy's parents that the boy is away with a friend, Cohen remains uneasy—even after evidence links the clothes to a missing girl who eventually turns up dead. Cohen calls on his many contacts in the Brighton Beach Russian émigré community, including underworld figures and other unsavory characters, for help in solving the case. Meanwhile, his boss, who believes a serial killer is preying on New York City's youngsters, alternatively engages and excludes him from the investigation. Nadelson (Bloody London) pulls few punches, and the final revelation is a genuine shocker—a rare accomplishment in crime fiction these days. Nadelson is also the author of a biography, Comrade Rockstar, which is under film option to Tom Hanks.

Review

“Lesser thriller writers…waste pages reaching for the effects that Nadelson achieves in a couple of lines.”
Daily Mail

“A cracker of a story, original, well-written and fast-paced.”
Sunday Times

“Fiction’s most exciting private dick — keeps Nadelson up there with the crime greats.”
Daily Mirror

I'm from Brooklyn--the old Brooklyn of the Brooklyn Dodgers when Gil Hodges and Jackie Robinson lived just down the street. Those days are gone and I, like many other gently-maturing Brooklynites can wax nostalgic about them; but if you want to visit today's Brooklyn from the comfort of your arm chair, let Reggie Nadelson escort you. No one in recent decades does as good a job as she of capturing the atmosphere of how Brooklyn has churned, as it always has, into new cultural configurations under the influence of waves of Russian immigrants. With her you will experience their street life, foods, entrepreneurship, their ambition, audatity, and yes their crime. This latter is Nadelson's special territory and no one is better at taking you into that world than her Artie Cohen. A Russian transplant himself, with a foot planted firmly in the downtown scene across the river in Manhattan but with his heart and soul still located among the good, the bad, and the ugly in his more newly-native Brooklyn. As they used to say in my old neighborhood--"Enjoy."

A complicated whodunit, one of the best things about this novel is how well the city of New York plays as a character. Not the fake, glitzy New York of The Donald set but the diverse New York of many working immigrant groups, with neighborhoods well described. The characters are well written and the reader is immersed in all strata of Russian immigrant culture, legal and illegal, despite all that Artie Cohen, the protagonist detective does to eradicate his fading links to his past. The plot and subplots are so well woven that this demands to be a one night read through. Two major flaws, however. The dialogue for the child supposed to be a troubled Aspergers doesn't ring true for someone with that syndrome; second, there are so many misspellings and kerning errors throughout, it's possible to lose track of what's happening because you'll be tracking the errors instead!

The story was probably good, but the author took too much time with description of each scene and character. He lost me after a while as I kept wanting the story to take off and take me somewhere. I lost interest and didn't complete the book.

I admit, I discovered this as a free kindle book, but am astounded by the complexity of the tale and the writing. A couple of formatting issues should not put the reader off ( it took me three "offish" to realise it was " of fish")! The story is grim but not noir. The diverse immigrant communities are so well described, it's uncanny (and disturbing, and occasionaly wry or amusing). I can understand a reader being put off by the story's plot. It is very grim. But characterization is brilliant and believable. For me this was a compelling and disturbing modern American tale.
