Hot Poppies (Artie Cohen Mysteries)

Hot Poppies (Artie Cohen Mysteries)Probably a bitthan 3 stars Reggie Nadelson reminds me of Sara Paretsky except this is NYC not Chicago Hot Poppies I believe the first of the series focuses on Manhattan s Lower East Side It could just as well be called The Friends of Artie Cohen Great sense of place and good nuanced characters are the book s strengths Artie is really Artemy, an ex pat from Moscow, who became an NYC policeman and then left the force The plot sucks him back into detective work through a friend s plea for help with the body of a Chinese girl found in his office Like Paretsky, Nadelson likes big issues and the Chinese snakeheads with the traffic in women smuggled in from mainland China are front and center I understand some of the other Artie Cohen books are better but this was a good start. Babies were in jeopardy which is usually a deal breaker for meBut enjoyable none the less. This was not as good as others I ve read by this author I thought it was a bit hard to keep up with the different characters, the villains were hard to distinguish from each other Nadelson is very good at describing the setting, putting the reader in the actual spot where the story is taking place. Not too different from Red Mercury, in terms of both strengths and weaknesses Wonderful writing and characters, well created tone, weak plotting with a very similar McGuffin at its center Again, though, the writing is so good, the weaknesses tend to be of little consequence by the end of the book.
