Londongrad

Reggie Nadelson: Londongrad (UK 2010)

From the Publisher:
On the outskirts of New York, a child's swing turns gently in the breeze. Resting on it, propped at an odd angle, is the body of a young woman: naked, mutilated, and bound in silver duct tape. In the wounds on her chest, congealed blood pools in the shape of the letter T; the calling-card of a frenzied killer...Unfortunately for Artie Cohen, death is never far away. In London, where glamorous old-world emigres rub shoulders with the hungry young zealots of Putin's Moscow, a hired gun with sadistic tastes has crashed the party. And where international espionage, business and corruption mingle, Artie might have to dance with the devil to save the life of a friend...

Londongrad

Reggie Nadelson: Londongrad (USA 2009)

From the Publisher:
"If I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend, I hope I should have the guts to betray my country." - E. M. Forster

Through seven previous novels, Reggie Nadelson has created one of the more memorable characters in detective fiction: Artie Cohen, New York police detective and first-generation American with complex ties to his Russian past, especially his close friendship with the enigmatic and flamboyant New York/London club owner T olya Sverdloff. Now, in Londongrad -- by far Nadelson's most ambitious novel to date -- Artie is faced with a murder that strikes at him personally and will ultimately place his best friend's life in his hands as it challenges his own loyalty.

In a playground in Brooklyn, Artie is led to a dead girl tied up in duct tape on a children's swing. He soon realizes the killer murdered the wrong girl -- the intended victim was Valentina S verdloff, Tolya's daughter, long adored by Artie. Artie flies to London to tell Tolya and finds himself enmeshed on his friend's behalf in a maelstrom of Russian money and crime. Like Berlin at the end of World War II, somebody tells Artie, Londongrad, as it's known, has become an offshore island for the new Russian underworld. Over his head, Artie is drawn further in, to Moscow, where, balancing between the old KGB and the new FSB, between the dazzle and grimness of Russia today, he uncovers a painful truth about his past that puts Tolya's life in the balance.

Reggie Nadelson: Londongrad. An Artie Cohen Mystery. Walker & Co., ISBN: 9780802717528 (June, 2009), 390 p., $25.00.

Londongrad

Reggie Nadelson: Londongrad (UK 2009)

From the Publisher:
This is an entirely riveting crime novel that travels from the Russian criminal underworld of London to Russian Brooklyn and Russia itself. "Londongrad" opens on the fringes of New York, where Brooklyn abuts on Queens and where planes heading for JFK fly in low over the Jamaica wetlands. Russian-American PI Artie Cohen finds a dead girl wrapped from head to toe in silver duct tape - 'Mummy Girl', she is dubbed by the newspapers. Along with his new sidekick, Bobo Leven, a twenty-eight-year-old detective who still lives with his Russian parents in Brighton Beach, Artie hunts for the killer, a hunt which leads him to London - or 'Londongrad'. Londongrad is emigre home to a quarter of a million Russians - the oligarchs, City traders, restaurateurs, asylum seekers, the rich and not so rich, who create a Little Russia in the heart of Britain's capital. Here, a new Cold War is played out against a setting of huge country houses, and lavish London apartments, in restaurants and Orthodox churches and bars. In Londongrad, oligarchs employ squads of former SAS men as bodyguards, buy football clubs, and - perhaps - plot the overthrow of President Putin.
