These are terribly plotted but have atmosphere out the wazoo. ( )

Didn't Finish. New York history prompted me to research that further; but for a place in my personal library, this book did not make the cut. Couldn't get into the characters--didn't really care about what they did, were doing, or were going to do and that's an absolute for any book. I don't have to 'LIKE' the the character--great villains make for a terrific read--but I have to care what they are up to. Use to read eveything--no matter what--cover to cover. Now I know better--many, many great books, not so much time. ( )

Artie Cohen, A Russian-born NYPD detective gets a panicked call from an old friend who is being threatened in his Brooklyn neighborhood, Red Hook, which itself is threatened (or renewed, depending on your perspective) by gentrification. I've never read this series before - it has an interesting narrative voice and a strong sense of place. I'll look for more in this series. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802716385, Paperback)

Artie Cohen has just married Maxine Crabbe and is about to take a honeymoon when the death of his friend Sid McKay pulls him back. Uncovering secrets he had never known Sid was keeping, as the Republican National Convention of 2004 dominates the city, Artie frantically scours its unknown fringes, from Red Hook to Hunts Point to the old High Line, uncovering a web of lies and deceit, and in the process revealing the twisted ways in which information can be corrupted and turned into propaganda. Through her great skills as a storyteller, Reggie Nadelson weaves a thrilling tale of deception, while bringing her flawed but deeply human protagonist to ever-greater life.
