The first novel in an exciting crime trilogy starring Russian-Jewish cop Artie Cohen (“the detective every women would like to find in her bed.” —Guardian)Reggie Nadelson’s new Artie Cohen mystery begins when a jogger finds a kid’s clothes drenched in blood and buried in the half frozen earth near Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach. The action in the story takes place in south Manhattan where Artie lives, an area still traumatized by the loss of the Twin Towers, and coastal Brooklyn — Brighton Beach, all boardwalk, beach and Russians; Coney Island with its wrecked amusement park; and Sheepshead Bay with its inlets and fishing boats.The plot revolves around the killing of one child and the abduction of another, and the subsequent outbreak of fear. Fear is the real story here. The fear that explodes when two children are involved and still others seem to go missing. The way the city is still locked in the terror that’s never gone away since 9/11. The constant presence of barricades and barriers and soldiers with AKs is part of the New York domestic landscape. It’s also about Artie’s relationship with the Russian community in Brooklyn; the way the story reels him back over and over, the way he can never really escape.From the Hardcover edition.

Talk about Disturbed Earth

This dreary and dark exploration of post 9/11 New York is more of a character exploration than a mystery. As a series of children vanish, Artie Cohen is tasked with finding them -- yet his investigation style is ridiculous and barely goes beyond surface level. This becomes almost comedic when a child he loves -- his godson -- vanishes and he agrees with the child's mother to delay letting the police know so he can investigate . . . yet he spends the next few hours drinking and having a joyless interlude with a disturbed woman.

Everyone in this book is tortured, many of them for reasons that never come to light, and the plot is beyond convoluted. I consider myself a fairly intelligent person and there were still elements of the story that made no sense to me at the end. I don't want to give away anything, but the final resolution of the story is not satisfactory. I thought there would be some investigation, some mystery, but instead I just felt like Cohen spun his wheels, got drunk, and brooded about 9/11.
A complicated whodunit, one of the best things about this novel is how well the city of New York plays as a character. Not the fake, glitzy New York of The Donald set but the diverse New York of many working immigrant groups, with neighborhoods well described. The characters are well written and the reader is immersed in all strata of Russian immigrant culture, legal and illegal, despite all that Artie Cohen, the protagonist detective does to eradicate his fading links to his past. The plot and subplots are so well woven that this demands to be a one night read through. Two major flaws, however. The dialogue for the child supposed to be a troubled Aspergers doesn't ring true for someone with that syndrome; second, there are so many misspellings and kerning errors throughout, it's possible to lose track of what's happening because you'll be tracking the errors instead!
Intense mystery about Russians in Brighton Beach/Coney Island, a missing boy, and a dead girl. Many insights into this ethnic group along with twists and turns as well. I could feel the cold of the Brighton Beach/Coney Island area as the searches for his missing godson.
The story was probably good, but the author took too much time with description of each scene and character. He lost me after a while as I kept wanting the story to take off and take me somewhere. I lost interest and didn't complete the book.
I admit, I discovered this as a free kindle book, but am astounded by the complexity of the tale and the writing. A couple of formatting issues should not put the reader off ( it took me three "offish" to realise it was " of fish")! The story is grim but not noir. The diverse immigrant communities are so well described, it's uncanny (and disturbing, and occasionaly wry or amusing). I can understand a reader being put off by the story's plot. It is very grim. But characterization is brilliant and believable. For me this was a compelling and disturbing modern American tale.
Plot moved a bit too slow and story took a dark tone toward the end.
I didnt really want to put this down. Even with slightly predictable characters, it keeps you hanging and eager to find out "who dunnit".
I really liked this book, had me guessing all the way. But I must point out the numerous typos!!!! In this day and age there is no way that should happen.
