    One thought on “Londongrad”

    1. Although the protagonist is a detective, this book is less mystery and far more a rich journey through the complexities and dark side of criminal Russian communities in three countries. I'll look for more from Ms. Reggie Nadelson.

    2. I'd read a couple reviews of this book when I reached about the half way point and there was one that really resonated with me - it mentioned being too far through to stop reading, and that's exactly the same situation for myself (courtesy of Ian Mapp). Don't get me wrong, I think Nadelson can write and the style is easy to read yet with a good vocabulary and well written. However, it's the story for me that is the disappointing factor, as despite being a well written book the story didn't capti [...]

    3. THis is my first Artie Cohen mystery, but I think I'll have to read more. Russian-born NYC cop finds himself back in Moscow following the murder of his beloved Val, the daughter of his best friend and his own occasional fling. UPDATE: Very satisfying conclusion. I will have to look for the other books in this series!

    4. A good detective story, with the action moving from New York to Moscow and London. A little slow in places, but a decent plot and I liked the references to the intriguing true story of Alexander Litvinenko.

    5. The plot may have its dubious moments, but the friendship between detective Artie and his wannabe oligarch friend Tolya is a beautiful creation.

    6. This is the kind of book that one picks up with a over thought conception of a plot replete with all kinds of intrigue and tasteful mayhem and then, without warning, falls flat - and takes you along with it. What a letdown!! I picked up the book because of a promising blurb at the back that promised to delve deep into the life of Russian émigrés in London and their love hate relationship with self serving political hacks back in Moscow. Artie Cohen, the detective, is suddenly tasked with findi [...]

    7. I get a horrible feeling when I read a book and get to the end and it has been an utter waste of time. There are too many good books out there. I should have given up, but this one had the misfortune of getting vaguely interesting at the mid point and by then, I was too in.This is broad in its scope, stretcging from NY to London to Moscow. However, very little happens for a crime book. There is no mystery, no suspense, the characters are flat and lifeless. The author seems to repeat the same phr [...]

    8. I would give this book a 4.5, actually.The book was very meaningful to me, not because the initial crime was compelling (it was OK), but because the geographical shifts from NYC, to London, and finally to Moscow describe a world of Russians that most of us in America do not encounter.My husband & I have spent time in Russia & Ukraine during the past 15 years, including a week in Moscow just 2 years ago. His description of the "new Russia" rang true to me in many ways, not least of which [...]

    9. I've stuck with Artie Cohen through thick and thin, and I'm not about to quit now. Although, to be honest, his escapades are getting old. It seems he is always in Moscow or London, scoring a gun, getting beat up, hanging around long-legged Russian beauties in seedy night clubs. There isn't much of a plot in this one, and the dialogue and atmosphere aren't good enough to save it. It seems Nadelson is pointlessly rehashing old material (we've already been through the radioactive scare, Tolya's mur [...]

    10. "Londongrad" Reggie'go Nadelsona jest prosto skonstruowaną i w związku z tym łatwą do czytania książką. Mamy w niej jednego wyraźnego głównego bohatera i jeden wyraźnie nakreślony bazowy motyw. Tak naprawdę, można powiedzieć, że mamy tu do czynienia z przeciętnym, dość sztampowym kryminałem, którego subiektywną wartość można ocenić tylko pod kątem fabularnym i tematyki. "Czwórka" wystawiona przeze mnie wiążę się właśnie ze zbieżnością klimatu książki i moic [...]

    11. This series evokes an atmosphere of Russian lives in America that keeps you fascinated for the whole book.Kinda like that series set in New York bright lights etc, or the one good book by Clare Messude, it's about immersing yourself in that totally different culture for a whilin. Disclaimer: these are my own ramblings, not aiming to critique/ judge, but rather appreciate those brave enough to bridge the gap between thought and paper!

    12. I always feel a little sad when I've fully caught up on an author, like I am now after this last Artie Cohen book. All that's left now is to wait and see where Nadelson is going to take Artie, with one of my favorite characters dead (Val) and a semi-compromised position he finds himself in.In the sense of setting up the ending for the next book, this is clearly the best Cohen book, I'm pretty much salivating for the next one

    13. Not the greatest detective work you'll read, but it goes quickly and there are a few interesting people along the way. Artie Cohen is far above the other characters in this book. You feel his sadness and anger about the situations. The others are caricatures, as they say.Only recommended for speedreaders.

    14. This was much so much better than Fresh Kills. But I still feel like Nadelson can't really create a sucessful plot. Her books are soy. But Artie Cohen is a great character and I can't quite give up on him yet.

    15. Artie Cohen - Jewish Russian son of KGB agent and refusnik is a detective in NY. I've read 2 of this series and will happily read them all. Artie solves the crime tumbling just on the far side of out of control.

    16. I do love this series but it really bugs me that the instant Artie 'forgets' to talk to a vital witness, or says he'll see them 'in the morning' you know they will be dead when you turn the page! It's too formulaic :(

    17. Set between New York, London and Moscow - story details a short time in the lives of Russians who now live in the US but have ties back to their birth land. A fairly predictable who done it.

    18. Another mystery series I enjoy, with a case set amongst the non law-abiding Russian plutocrats of London and New York
