A murder in New York's diamond district; a dead Chinese girl with a photograph in her pocket; a plastic bag of irradiated heroin lying on the mantelpiece in an empty apartment; a fire in a sweatshop in the city's swarming Chinatown; and the worst blizzard in New York history - these events conspire to bring ex-cop Artie Cohen out of retirement and back into an obsessive world of murder and politics that nearly killed him. Artie's struggles to link them take him from New York, his own back yard, to Hong Kong, site of the last big grab on earth, where everything, and everyone, is for sale.

Nadelson is a skilled plotter and has passed the second novel test with distinction.' The Times If Raymond Chandler were still alive and watching CNN, he would probably write thrillers like this.' Sunday Express There are a number of storylines in Hot Poppies, Nadelson manages the meshing of all these different strands brilliantly, leading to a beautifully satisfying ending.
