IAN RANKIN (Tatler, December 2009)
"Nadelson writes wonderfully well about New York in her crime novel series featuring detective Artie Cohen. Her new book, however takes Cohen out of his comfort zone. The murder of a Russian friend's daughter leads him to London and Moscow. Nadelson's take on a London of Oligarchs fuelled by money from the 'new Russia' is thrilling and trenchant"
"Nadelson's steady pacing keeps the pages turning... the detective-story format overlays an ambitious novel that manages to trace the tentacles of an international underworld of increasingly palpable influence, while at the same time forcing us to confront uncomfortable moral questions of loyalty and honor."
Marcel Berlins, The Times
Nadelson writes and plots with panache, and she portrays the Russian diaspora in the US, funny and sad, with conviction.
The Literary Review
This is a novel of many layer, a murder story underying a love story that underlies a portrait of a dangerous society rolling in filthy money and haunted by its equally filthy past…
Hank Wagner, Mystery Scene
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 such as this reviewer 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. … the drama and pathos Madelson milks from the second victim's passing is worth the price of admission all on it's own.
Russell James CRIME SCENE INTERNATIONAL
Nadelson's already good series about Russian-American cop Artie Cohen keeps getting better. This one moves beyond a mere cop novel to become a gripping, state-of-our-new-world novel. … Nadelson's prose is impatient and pared down, her eye is sharp … She knows her hero and his world, and she convinces us of her intimacy with a world most of us only read about in the newspapers – and reading is about as close as you should go. Why not start here.
