Bloody London (Artie Cohen Series #3)

Overview

As New York basks in the finest Indian summer of the century, no one notices the feral teenagers in Central Park, or the new angry class of homeless living near the river. No one connects them to the dead Englishman in the swimming pool of the city's most exclusive apartment building, or to the second-generation Russian gangsters who are buying respectability on the Upper East Side." "Artie Cohen, quitting his contented new life as a low-risk private investigator, finds himself in London, where the plot uncoils ...

Overview

As New York basks in the finest Indian summer of the century, no one notices the feral teenagers in Central Park, or the new angry class of homeless living near the river. No one connects them to the dead Englishman in the swimming pool of the city's most exclusive apartment building, or to the second-generation Russian gangsters who are buying respectability on the Upper East Side." "Artie Cohen, quitting his contented new life as a low-risk private investigator, finds himself in London, where the plot uncoils with a series of murders, a heartbreaking encounter with his longtime girlfriend, Lily Hanes, and a meeting with a figure out of Artie's Russian past. He finds London surprising, exciting, a city high on itself, the markets cranked up - a place ready to blow or sink when a millennial flood threatens to sweep it all away, and the rust on the windows in the riverside warehouses runs red in the rain.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Red Mercury Blues and Hot Poppies, Nadelson's first two books about Russian-born New York cop Artie Cohen were colorful but basically conventional mysteries. In her third book, the author makes a major leap forward in scope and depth. The novel--a harrowing take on the sickness that seeped out of Russia following the collapse of communism and infected New York and London--offers a frightening, apocalyptic vision of two cities drowning in success. Characters we've met before have grown and changed: Artie, still carrying several loads of immigrant baggage from his journey to Moscow to Israel to New York, is no longer a cop but a PI, doing special jobs for a much-subdued Sonny Lippert, his mentor, who's a federal prosecutor. Artie's lover, Lily Haines, now the mother of an adopted Chinese baby girl, is worried that Artie's current case--looking into a Russian connection to the murder of a wealthy and powerful Englishman who ruled his exclusive Sutton Place co-op with a ruthless hand--might stir up some old secrets of her own, especially about her ex-husband, who has a found a way to profit from the homeless. And Tolya Sverdloff, Cohen's charming and conniving friend from the streets of Moscow and Brighton Beach, is now a high-flying player in some brutal financial games, worried enough to have a secret steel-walled safe room carved into his apartment. The scenes set in New York City are taut and sharply etched, but the novel really takes off--into Nathaniel West country--when Artie follows Lily to a London ready to burst from catastrophic rains and the accumulated poisons of decades of official greed and neglect. This is a powerful portrait of cities, and people, wobbling on the edge. (Dec.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    Enjoyable Artie Cohen mystery

    Former Russian citizen, Artie Cohen left NYPD to become a private investigator. Much of his work comes from Sonny Lippert, who asks Artie to investigate a Manhattan murder of a British expatriate Tommy Pascoe. The assailant tried to remove the victim's head before leaving the deceased to swim in an exclusive Sutton Place pool. <P>Artie begins to investigate the murder and soon finds a Russian connection that sends the sleuth into Brooklyn. Other killings follow and lead Artie to London where the city seems on the verge of annihilation or exhilaration depending on where you sit in the food chain. <P>BLOODY LONDON, the third Artie Cohen mystery is a puissant tale that focuses on the decade-old aftermath of the collapse of Communism on New York and London. Artie remains a charming but wild mix while his girlfriend Lily seems stronger than previously depicted. The who-done-it is entertaining as Artie falls in love with the decadent, exciting, and pendulum-like swinging London. Though Reggie Nadelson makes Artie seem too lyrical at times, this doesn't prevent fans or readers new to this exciting series (see RED HOT BLUES and HOT POPPIES) from enjoying the maturing of the characters as the tale twists into new areas. <P>Harriet Klausner
