Artie Cohen has just married Maxine Crabbe and is about to take a honeymoon when the death of his friend Sid McKay pulls him back. Uncovering secrets he had never known Sid was keeping, as the Republican National Convention of 2004 dominates the city, Artie frantically scours its unknown fringes, from Red Hook to Hunts Point to the old High Line, uncovering a web of lies and deceit, and in the process revealing the twisted ways in which information can be corrupted and turned into propaganda. Through her great skills as a storyteller, Reggie Nadelson weaves a thrilling tale of deception, while bringing her flawed but deeply human protagonist to ever-greater life.

Comrade Rockstar, her biography of Dean Reed, the American émigré who became the biggest rock star in the Soviet Union, is under option to Tom Hanks. Born in Greenwich Village, Nadelson now lives in downtown Manhattan.From Publishers Weekly:
Nadelson's strong sixth Artie Cohen whodunit (after 2005's The Disturbed Earth) depicts a grim and gritty post-9/11 New York City faced with new fears of terrorism aimed at disrupting the 2004 Republican National Convention. As Cohen, an NYPD detective who grew up in the Soviet Union, prepares to marry, he receives cryptic requests for help from an old friend, Sid McKay, a respected reporter who has become increasingly disillusioned with the corruption of the American news media. Cohen imperils his personal happiness by going the extra mile for McKay, delving into a complicated world of terrorism, the Russian underworld and real estate speculation. Tragically, Cohen's efforts can't prevent McKay's murder. The author continues to raise the stakes for her three-dimensional hero and shows every sign of having many more compelling stories to tell.
