9780099465690: Fresh Kills

With his wife Maxine out of town, Artie Cohen is alone in Manhattan when his nephew Billy Farone is released for a couple of weeks from the young offenders institution where he has been since he stabbed Heshey Shank to death. Artie is the one Billy wants to come home to, the only person Billy cares about, the man Billy wants to be.

Now a handsome, intelligent and funny boy of fourteen, Billy seems to be cured, to be free of whatever it was — sickness, evil — that made him kill Shank. Artie believes, wants desperately to believe, that Billy is OK. But from the moment a small plane crashes on to the beach at Coney Island, bombs go off in London, and New York is shaken out of the sense that the bad times are over,
Artie begins to wonder. There are signs that Heshey Shank’s family want Billy locked up for good. And Billy’s mother doesn’t want him coming home.

Then bodies begin to appear and Artie, up against a brick wall of his own hope and despair, doesn’t know what or whom to believe...

About the Author:

A journalist and documentary film maker, Reggie Nadelson is a New Yorker who also makes her home in London. She is the author of six novels featuring the detective Artie Cohen, most recently Red Hook. Her non-fiction book Comrade Rockstar, the story of the American who became the biggest rock star in the Soviet Union, is to be made into a film starring Tom Hanks.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. This gripping psychological whodunit, the concluding volume of Nadelson's post-9/11 trilogy (after 2006's Red Hook), presents a convincing portrait of New York City in the aftermath of the destruction of the Twin Towers. NYPD detective and Russian émigré Artie Cohen is adjusting to married life when he again becomes responsible for his troubled adolescent nephew, Billy Farone, recently released from juvie. As Billy's parents are abroad, Artie is left to watch over him and help monitor his adjustment to the outside world. When Cohen's boss, Sonny Lippert, gets a new lead in a very old child murder case, he attempts to drag Cohen away from Billy, with mixed success. Despite indications that Billy's criminal tendencies may not have abated, Cohen labors to defend him to others. The power of the ending will especially resonate for readers of the earlier volumes, but even newcomers will be impressed by the author's uncompromising vision of human frailty and the conflict between personal and professional duty.
