Description
Barack Obama has just been elected, and all New York is ecstatic—especially Harlem—in this ninth outing for Reggie Nadelson's Russian-American detective Artie Cohen. But on a freezing night a few weeks after the election, Cohen gets a late call from his ex-girlfriend Lily, who took up residence at Harlem's famous Louis Armstrong Apartments while working on Obama's campaign, and is now begging for his help. Her Russian neighbor, Marianna Simonova, has died, and Lily fears she's at fault and needs Artie's Russian connections.

"Set in December 2008, Nadelson's ninth mystery featuring Russian émigré and NYPD detective Artie Cohen (after 2009's Londongrad) shows her at the top of her game.... Nadelson has few peers at incorporating a strong whodunit plot into a contemporary police inquiry, but her real strength is Cohen himself, a tortured but sympathetic soul whose close relationships are never straightforward."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The action takes place almost entirely within the walls of a Harlem apartment building, where Cohen's former girlfriend, Lily, now lives and where her Russian neighbor, Marianna, has died under suspicious circumstances. Fearing that she might be implicated in the death, Lily calls Artie for help. What he finds in the building is a cross section of the new Harlem—young professionals living alongside older, affluent African Americans, all with agendas about the future of the building. Backstories bring together the concerns of the younger residents with a world Artie knows well—that of Russian immigrants, also on the make, with many conflicted over the ideals of new and old Russia, as the black characters are over new and old Harlem.... Nadelson's latest offers a fascinating look at culture change in New York's melting pot."—Booklist
