Nadelson's sixth Artie Cohen novel (afterDisturbed Earth ) opens as the 2004 Republican National Convention takes over New York City. About to go on his honeymoon, the newly married Artie is delayed.

Red Hook, the sixth of Nadelson's Artie Cohen novels, is New York noir for the 21st century, with cop Cohen the classic New Yorker: sexy, mournful, smart, funny, screwed-up, a Russian immigrant intent on throwing off his past, which always comes back to grab him. The novel begins a. . The novel begins as Artie, to everyone's astonishment, marries his new girlfriend, Maxine (who first appeared in Disturbed Earth). She is cheerful and pragmatic, but Artie is still half in love with his ex, Lily Hanes, who left him after 9/11. Halfway through Red Hook, Lily returns, and tries to explain why she left

Ah, the Artie Cohen novels of Reggie Nadelson! Readers are always assured of a sardonic, fast moving read in these highly diverting and (highly idiomatic) books – as is the case with Red Hoo. s ever with Nadelson, it’s the adroit juggling of the personal and plotting elements of the books that is so consistently successful. Its rare that crime writing should so passionately and precisely examine its own time.

Several months have passed since the tragedy enacted in Disturbed Earth. Artie Cohen has just married Maxine and is about to take time out of the city with her when two events pull him back: the apparent murder of a friend, and the appearance of his former girlfriend, Lily, their break-up never fully resolved. Through her great skills as a storyteller and creator of memorable characters, Reggie Nadelson weaves a thrilling tale of deception, while bringing to ever-greater life her protagonist, Artie Cohen-deeply flawed and deeply human. Thriller & Crime.

This is an entirely riveting crime novel that travels from the Russian criminal underworld of London to Russian Brooklyn and Russia itself.

Presenting Artie Cohen, Reggie Nadelson's streetsmart, good-looking New York cop, with a supporting cast that includes Artie's glamorous girl Lily Hanes, and his gnarly superior Sonny Lippert.

This is an entirely riveting crime novel that travels from the Russian criminal underworld of London to Russian Brooklyn and Russia itself.

In the second of three Artie books, set on the New York waterfront, Artie Cohen pursues the murder of a reporter on the docks of Red Hook.Jack Santiago is famous for his investigative stories, for his ability to get under the skin of the rich and famous, and for his reporting on nuclear terrorism in New York. The city, he insists, is on the verge of an attack, an attack so sudden and secret that none of the preparations will make any difference. He is obsessed with suitcase nukes — tiny weapons concealed in bags easily carried into the city — and with the fact that 100,000 people will die of nuclear poisoning. One problem with Santiago is that he is found dead, on the night of the August 2003 blackout, when the lights go out up and down the east coast. The other problem is that he has made up the stories.On the day the lights go down, Artie Cohen, still regretting the loss of Lily Hanes who left him, marries Maxine Crabbe, a long-time friend who once saved his ass in Disturbed Earth. He wants a life, kids, a home; with Maxie, he’s convinced himself he can find it.In the course of uncovering Santiago’s killer, Artie also uncovers the ways in which information is regularly corrupted and turned into propaganda — something he knows about from his childhood in the Soviet Union. And, there’s something else — a link between Santiago’s former boss and Artie’s neighbour, Ricky Tae, a black, gay man who is also eventually murdered. For Artie, the case is further complicated by Red Hook’s coming development as the hot new New York neighbourhood, not to mention a complication in his own life; the return of Lily Hanes.From the Hardcover edition.

I was disappointed in this book because Londongrod, a more recent work, is phenomenal page turner. This book I found to be just 'okay'.
  • Uthergo
I'm not sorry that I read it, but it turned out to be all talk and no action. So much for me and Artie Cohen!

Artie Cohen is a worthy addition to the pantheon of cynical and brilliant urban detectives both in love with and in rebellion and rejection against his city. For Artie it is New York: not the glitter, but the grime, the ethnic Russian enclaves, the crime worlds and the worlds of working artists and writers. Nadelson suffuses this book with the gripping sense of dread matched only by Arkady Renko's Russia or Smiley's Berlin at their darkest. The diffused sense of distrust: who is a friend? who is a murderer? is someone - worst of all - both? is electrifying and effective. Balanced against this drama is the pull of a new marriage, new family, a hope of normalcy and faith in a wounded city. We admire Artie, we fear for him, we hope he makes healthy choices - and most of all: we immediately order the rest of his saga!
