Book Description

Sept. 28 2010 Artie Cohen

In a playground in Brooklyn, Artie Cohen is led to a dead girl
up in duct tape on a children's swing. He soon realizes the killer
murdered the wrong girl—the intended victim was his best friend Tolya
Sverdloff's daughter, who soon meets a similar fate. Artie
Cohen—Russan-born New York police detective—is drawn inexorably from New
York to London and ultimately to Moscow in pursuit of the killer. There,
already in over his head, Artie uncovers a painful truth about his past
that puts Tolya's life in the balance.

Product Description


“Nadelson’s steady pacing keeps the pages turning... the detective-story format overlays an ambitious novel that manages to trace the tentacles of an international underworld of increasingly palpable influence, while at the same time forcing us to confront uncomfortable moral questions of loyalty and honor.”—Harper’s

“Nadelson writes wonderfully well about New York in her crime novel series featuring detective Artie Cohen.  Her new book, however, takes Cohen out of his comfort zone.  The murder of a Russian friend’s daughter leads him to London and Moscow.  Nadelson’s take on a London of oligarchs fuelled by money from the ‘new’ Russia is thrilling and trenchant.”—Ian Rankin

“Reggie Nadelson is an original. Her detective Artie Cohen is as cunning as he is charming, as hardnosed as he is vulnerable, more gemütlich and giving than he likes to reveal. Her dialogue, characters and descriptive atmosphere are so authentic they assault the senses. This is crime fiction at its highest level.”—Open Letters Monthly

“Reggie Nadelson, where have you been all my life?  This book is not just a well-written thriller, but one of those, ‘Damn, she’s really good’ type of books, the kind that inspires reading junkies to immediately seek out the author’s backlist to see what he’s been missing.  LONDONGRAD is a dark, moody, brooding gem that’s bound to get under your skin.”—Mystery Scene magazine

“If your summer reading calls for something more in the murder mystery and thriller genre, you can’t go wrong with Nadelson’s latest installment in the Artie Cohen mystery series…a timely tale of crossed loyalties and international conspiracies that should serve many well as a guilty summer pleasure.”—Russian Life magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars Artie Cohen In His Prime June 23 2009
By S. Zwerling - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My favorite detective, Artie Cohen, is again at loose in the world. This time in New York, London, and Moscow. The reasons for his wandering are tied so tightly to the plot that I hesitate to spoil it for you by attempting to summarize very much. Suffice it to say that there are multiple murders in all locations and enough twists in the narrative to keep you guessing and engaged. Like me, I suspect you will not be able to put "Londongrad" down. To say that this is a page-turner does not do it justice because its sense of place and character is so strong that you will forget that this is a "just" a thriller and get draw into its literary qualities. Reggie Nadelson's best yet. I can't wait for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Timely Tale of Crossed Loyalties July 9 2009
By Paul E. Richardson - Published on
If your summer reading calls for something more in the murder mystery and thriller genre, you can't go wrong with Nadelson's latest installment (the 8th)?in the Artie Cohen mystery series.

Cohen is a hard-drinking, no-nonsense New York cop who also happens to be a first generation Russian-American. His life is tangled with enough unsavory types to provide ample color and grist, and in this instance, it sucks him into the world of Russian oligarchs, FBI investigations and FSB?in trigues. The catalyst is the murder of two young women, one of whom is his lover, Valentina, who also happens to be his best friend's daughter.

Splicing in bits of current events, most notably the radioactive murder of Alexander Litvinenko, Nadelson fashions a timely tale of crossed loyalties and international conspiracies that should serve many well as a guilty summer pleasure. (As reviewed in Russian Life)

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Nadelson's finest... Aug. 3 2009
By Terribleman - Published on
Artie Cohen truly came into his own with Disturbed Earth, the first volume of Nadelson's Archipelago Trilogy, and since then has gone from strength to strength - though in these powerful, poignant, novels, strength is often weakness. Artie Cohen her brooding Russian cop has been clinging to his world as it began to crumble - in the heart-wrenching Fresh Kills, he vainly struggles to protect his nephew Billy Farone, but in Londongrad, Nadelson ups the stakes and Artie's world seems as though it might implode. The unearthly chill of the scene in which Artie discovers a body shrouded in silver duct tape turning slowly on a child's swing sets in motion a terrible spiral that sprawls outward from Brooklyn to the London and on to the suppurating corruption of Putin's Moscow. An exceptional thriller.
5.0 out of 5 stars page turner Dec 9 2010
By Kathryn L. E. Rabinow - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the type of book that incorporates a zillion tiny details that only someone who knows the locale intimately would know. Those names and descriptions lend an authenticity to this fictional thriller; makes one a believer from the get-go. Packed full of current details and fictional bits and pieces---the reader is left wondering just what is the 'real deal'. This is a cloak and dagger book in the very best sense; a true page-turner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Summer Beach Read EVER!!! Aug. 13 2009
By Joss - Published on
There aren't many books that I have read to date in which my husband has been interested ...But I must say that after reading and very much enjoying Londongrad, I left it on his night stand. By the end of the day he was telling me how much he had enjoyed it!!!

After reading Reggie Nadelson's Londongrad I obtained some of her other Artie Cohen novels (Fresh Kills, Red Hook, and Disturbed Earth). I must say they were all terrific.

If you are looking for a great summer beach read pick up Londongrad If you're anything like me you wont be disappointed!
