Product Description

Review

“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

Artie Cohen In His Prime June 23 2009
By S. Zwerling - Published on Amazon.com
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.

A Timely Tale of Crossed Loyalties July 9 2009
By Paul E. Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
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)

One of Nadelson's finest... Aug. 3 2009
By Terribleman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
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.
page turner Dec 9 2010
By Kathryn L. E. Rabinow - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Excellent Read - Buy a bunch, they make great gifts! Aug. 10 2009
By J. Alex - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I've always enjoyed Nadelson's series about scraggly jazzophile detective Artie Cohen, and Londongrad didn't disappoint! It's an easy but engaging read, beautifully toeing the line between pop fiction and international panoramic crime expose; if you're looking for a clever and fun read this summer, you should check out Londongrad. It's great travel reading - like lying back and slowly enjoying a taboo pina colada in the middle of the day, that happens to also make you feel a little edgier, cooler, and smarter. I love reading serial novels, too - once you finish this you can gobble the rest of the Artie books up, and wait eagerly for Nadelson's next installment!
