Inhaltsangabe: Written by the same author as "Floater" and nominated for an Edgar Allan Poe Award, this thriller features a Russian immigrant girl stripper, whose ambitions lead her to become involved with an unsavoury bunch of double dealers and, reluctantly, with murder.
Here is a tough, sexy, brilliant new crime thriller by the author of Floater that takes the reader on a highly entertaining tour of New York City's sleazier side.
Kate Piro was born in Odessa, Russia, but now lives in Brighton Beach, a neighborhood so heavily Russian that its residents call it "Little Odessa. Kate calls herself "Little Odessa" as well when she works the floor show at the Arabian Knights as a belly dancer with more curves than talent. Kate has no trouble attracting men, but they're about to get her into some complicated trouble. Her pot-smoking and -dealing boyfriend Nathan Metrevelli is a dropout from the American dream. Former New York City detective Stanley Bucyk is always a bit too eager to help Kate out of a jam. The shadowy Israeli restaurant owner Howard Ormont (a.k.a. Abu Safwat Khader) wants her to be his business partner--and his bed partner. And the slimily charming housebreaker Harry Lema at first drops by to rob Ormont's house, and then can't seem to tear himself away from either the scene of the crime or from Kate. He ends up being her only ally in the midst of dangerous games of bluff and double cross being played around Kate--a well-stacked pawn.
Little Odessa is a gritty novel with all the right moves--sharp, realistic dialogue, extensive inside knowledge of New York's shadier pursuits, and unfashionable neighborhoods, a delightfully tricky plot in which the good guys and bad guys constantly switch places, a violent climax aboard a Coney Island roller coaster. It confirms its author as one of the very best new American crime writers.
