Fresh Kills by Reggie Nadelson

Book Description

With his wife Maxine out of town, Artie Cohen is alone in Manhattan when his nephew Billy Farone is released for a couple of weeks from the young offenders' institution where he has been since he stabbed Heshey Shank to death. Artie is the one Billy wants to come home to, the only person Billy cares about, the man Billy wants to be. Now a handsome, intelligent and funny boy of fourteen, Billy seems to be cured, to be free of whatever it was - sickness, evil - that made him kill Shank. Artie believes, wants desperately to believe, that Billy is ok. But from the moment a small plane crashes on to the beach at Coney Island, bombs go off in London, and New York is shaken out of the sense that the bad times are over, Artie begins to wonder. There are signs that Heshey Shank's family want Billy locked up for good. And Billy's mother doesn't want him coming home. Then bodies begin to appear and Artie, up against a brick wall of his own hope and despair, doesn't know what or whom to believe...

Books By Author Reggie Nadelson

Manhattan 62 by Reggie Nadelson Manhattan 62, Hardback (January 2014)

Set against the fear and paranoia of the Cuban Missile Crisis, when two young Latinos are killed, an Irish detective teases out a thrilling story of spies, lies, murder and betrayal.

Blood Count by Reggie Nadelson Blood Count, Paperback (January 2012)

As the celebrations of Barack Obama's presidential victory draw to an end in the social melting pot of Harlem, New York, an old woman's death reveals deceit, racial tension, and city corruption...

Londongrad by Reggie Nadelson Londongrad, Paperback (June 2010)

'Nadelson writes wonderfully well... Her take on a London of oligarchs fuelled by money from "new" Russia is thrilling.' Ian Rankin

Bloody London by Reggie Nadelson Bloody London, Paperback (July 2006)

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.

US Kirkus Review » NYPD's Artie Cohen (Red Hook, 2006, etc.) shares his angst with yet another borough as he looks into the disappearance of a Staten Island trash mogul.His old boss Sonny Lippert doesn't mean to throw cold water on Artie Cohen's Coney Island idyll with his nephew Billy Farone, 14, home on leave from the Florida facility where he landed after stabbing Heshey Shank to death. After all, the trip had already been mildly disrupted when a private plane crashed on the beach. But Sonny is so hot to have Artie speak Russian to Vera Gorbachev - one of his girlfriend Rhonda's shirttail relations whose garbage contractor husband went downstairs one night to confront an intruder and vanished - that he talks him into leaving Billy on his own for two hours so that he can meet Sonny at Peter Luger's for steaks. Artie also leaves Billy when he drinks vodka with his old friend Tolya Sverdloff and when he stops off at Vera's home near the Fresh Kills landfill. He brings the teenager along to the lavish bash Tolya throws for Luda, an orphan Tolya's daughter Valentina brought home from Russia. But it's the place he can't bring Billy - the condo Artie's wife Maxine puts off limits to youth with a troubled past - that oppresses him most as he shuttles between the Manhattan loft he hasn't sold and the semi-suburban wasteland of Richmond.Self-flagellation is still job one, with detection taking second place in Nadelson's joyless sixth.
