9780099497790: Bloody London

As New York basks in a fine Indian summer, no one notices the feral teenagers in Central Park, or the homeless living by the river. Certainly no-one connects them to the Russian gangsters buying into respectability on the East Side, or to the dead Englishman in the swimming pool...

Thomas Pascoe, a super-rich, elderly investment banker, is found gorily murdered on the day he was due to return to London, floating in the pool of the most exclusive apartment block in town. As head of the 'co-op' for the luxury apartments, where the residents own the shares, Pascoe had his say in who got to live in them, and who didn't. Could this be a motive for his murder?

The investigation takes Artie Cohen to London, where the gripping plot unfolds with a series of murders, an encounter with his longtime girlfriend, and a meeting with a figure from the past. The momentum of apparently tangential events builds to a trademark thrilling conclusion.

Review:

"Blood floats. It was the first thing I noticed that morning. It spread slowly outward over the water in the swimming pool uptown". So begins Reggie Nadelson's third Artie Cohen novel with the Russian/American private eye leaving a New York basking in an Indian summer for damp London as part of his investigation into the Manhattan murder of a rich Englishman. The body was found in the swimming pool of an exclusive apartment block. Russian gangsters are buying themselves respectability in the form of upper East Side apartments. Any connection? What do you think? The New York inhabited by the emigrant Russian community is vividly captured. London as seen by Artie is equally evocative. He arrives as the bonfires of November 5 light up the sky. He drinks champagne and goes to the Groucho Club. But "London is rough" and soon the river turns from a tourist attraction into an act of god as a Millennial flood threatens to engulf the city. Artie's job, his personal life and his family history become ever more entwined and when the conclusion ultimately comes it is both surprising and satisfying. "When I'm at a murder scene I like to think about in metaphors", mutters Artie. "It passes the time and keeps you sane". He said it. Bloody London has it all. History and geography. Liquid and solid. Life and death. -- Nick Wroe
