9780099465683: Red Hook

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.

About the Author:

Reggie Nadelson is a New Yorker who also makes her home in London. She is a journalist and documentary film-maker and the author of the critically-acclaimed series featuring Artie Cohen.
From the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly:

Nadelson's strong sixth Artie Cohen whodunit (after 2005's The Disturbed Earth) depicts a grim and gritty post-9/11 New York City faced with new fears of terrorism aimed at disrupting the 2004 Republican National Convention. As Cohen, an NYPD detective who grew up in the Soviet Union, prepares to marry, he receives cryptic requests for help from an old friend, Sid McKay, a respected reporter who has become increasingly disillusioned with the corruption of the American news media. Cohen imperils his personal happiness by going the extra mile for McKay, delving into a complicated world of terrorism, the Russian underworld and real estate speculation. Tragically, Cohen's efforts can't prevent McKay's murder. The author continues to raise the stakes for her three-dimensional hero and shows every sign of having many more compelling stories to tell.

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It s a late summer Sunday in downtown New York City, and Artie Cohen is getting married. Watching the sun rising over the East River, he s content. A message comes in from an old friend, Sid McKay, asking Artie to come out to Red Hook in Brooklyn. It s his wedding day, but Artie owes Sid, so he goes. On arriving he finds a dead man spreadeagled in the water off the old docks. When Sid eventually shows up, he s scared, edgy and evasive, Artie suspects he s holding something back. Even at his own wedding party, later that day, Artie can t stop thinking about Sid. Why has the death of a vagrant spooked him so much?
