Red Hook

'“[A] sophisticated contemporary noir . . . What Cohen does so well here is to give us everything we require from a cop story . . . and then so much more: There’s a documentary panache to his depiction of Brooklyn and its history.” —Los Angeles Times“Red Hook is a real neighborhood in Brooklyn, and Red Hook is a book that gives you a real feeling for the neighborhood. Gabriel Cohen makes no effort to pretty up the place in this outstanding first novel.” —The New York Times Book Review“This first effort from Cohen works both as a good mystery and a literary novel. It is better than promising (may the gods take note): it is accomplished.” —Publishers Weekly“Red Hook has a kind of hard-earned grace and sly wit that set it apart from the hordes of conventional murder mysteries. Not just a gripping whodunit, it’s also a well-written story of fathers and sons and the life and death of a great New York neighborhood. . . . This is one of the most exciting urban crime novels to come along in years.” —Peter Blauner, author of Slow Motion Riot and The Intruder“The protagonist is flawed . . . yet deeply sympathetic in this accomplished first novel: a police procedural with heart.” —Kirkus Reviews'
