Description
In a playground in Brooklyn, Artie Cohen is led to the body of a young woman, wrapped with duct tape and tied to a children's swing, in this eighth mystery featuring Reggie Nadelson's Russian-born New York police detective. He soon realizes the killer murdered the wrong girl—the intended victim was his best friend Tolya Sverdloff's daughter Valentina, who soon meets a similar fate. Cohen is drawn inexorably from New York to London, and ultimately to Moscow, in pursuit of the killer. There, already in over his head, Artie uncovers a painful truth about his past that also puts Tolya's life in the balance.

"Nadelson's take on a London of oligarchs fuelled by money from the 'new' Russia is thrilling and trenchant."—Ian Rankin

"Reggie Nadelson, where have you been all my life? This book is not just a well-written thriller, but one of those, 'Damn, she's really good' type of books, the kind that inspires reading junkies to immediately seek out the author's backlist to see what he's been missing. Londongrad is a dark, moody, brooding gem that's bound to get under your skin."—Mystery Scene

"A chance encounter leads Artie Cohen to a disturbing Brooklyn crime scene in Nadelson's outstanding eighth novel to feature the New York City police detective and son of a former KGB officer (after 2007's Fresh Kills): a woman has been wrapped in duct tape and tied to a playground swing. Artie calls the murder in, but his attempts to remain uninvolved in the ensuing probe are futile. The more Artie learns about the victim, Masha Panchuk, the more he suspects that she was not the killer's intended target, and that his love, Valentina Sverdloff, daughter of his best friend, Tolya, was. When someone smothers Valentina to death, Artie must travel to London to break the tragic news to Tolya, a shady entrepreneur whose business activities straddle the line between legitimate and illegitimate. As the dark, compelling plot gathers momentum, Artie, a principled, street-smart guy with very human failings, launches his own quest for justice."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
