It's a late summer Sunday in downtown New York City, and Artie Cohen is getting married. Watching the sun rising over the East River, he's content. A message comes in from an old friend, Sid McKay, asking Artie to come out to Red Hook in Brooklyn. It's his wedding day, but Artie owes Sid, so he goes. On arriving he finds a dead man spreadeagled in the water off the old docks. When Sid eventually shows up, he's scared, edgy and evasive, Artie suspects he's holding something back. Even at his own wedding party, later that day, Artie can't stop thinking about Sid. Why has the death of a vagrant spooked him so much? It's not his case, but the more he digs, the more it drags him in, implicating - and threatening - his closest friends...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Praise for Reggie Nadelson: 'Artie Cohen is the detective New York deserves: smart, wounded, emotional, haunted, and not as tough as he thinks. Reggie Nadelson's Cohen books get better and better.'" * Salman Rushdie *
"Praise for Red Hook: 'Harrowing... Nadelson brilliantly sets down the fevers and woes of our latest age of anxiety. It's rare that crime writing should so passionately and precisely examine its own time. Its also reassuring to find a writer who is so magnificently up to the job." * Literary Review, Book of The Month *
"Red Hook is New York noir for the 21st century, with cop Cohen the classic New Yorker: sexy, mournful, smart, funny, screwed up, a Russian immigrant intent on throwing off his past, which always comes back to grab him... Everything comes together in a finale so involving you won't sleep until you turn the last page'." -- Helena Kennedy * Guardian *
