Artie Cohen is a good-looking New York City cop with a taste for women and jazz and no intention of looking back to the past he left behind twenty-five years earlier in Moscow. In Red Hot Blues, he is faced with a case that leaves him no choice but to confront that past. When a former KGB general is shot dead on live TV, Artie is compelled to take the case; the general was a friend of his father's. Artie doesn't have to go far until he is led into the heart of the Brighton Beach mafia, where the most lethal weapon on the street is rumored to be an elusive substance known as Red Mercury - an atomic weapon that has the terrifying advantage of being pocket-sized. Artie stumbles upon a radioactive trail of atomic smuggling that leads all the way back to Moscow. For Artie to solve this case, he must reclaim his past and return to the home he left behind. It is in Moscow that he finds love, tragedy, and the truth.
Rezension: Reggie Nadelson, an American journalist and documentary filmmaker living in London, has created a fascinating character for her first mystery: Artie Cohen, a New York cop who was Artemy Maximovich Otalsky before he left Russia as a teenager. Artie, burned to a crisp by working on some of the worst crimes America has to offer, is seriously reconsidering his choice of careers when his old Russian mentor/hero--former KGB general Gennadi Ustinov--is shot dead on a live television talk show. Egged on by a slippery federal prosecutor and the beautiful woman who hosted the show, Artie goes after the truth about Ustinov's life and death. His search takes him through the streets of Brooklyn's Brighton Beach and a shiny new Moscow that is as full of dangerous potholes as the old one he left behind. The London Times called the book "A Gorky Park for the 1990s, as Dashiell Hammett might have done it," and they were right on the money.
