    One thought on “The Cold Room”

    1. This novel is the second Harry Corbin-Adele Bentibi police procedural, with the two protagonists picking up from the beginning of their relationship at the end of the previous novel, “Bodies in Winter.” It is mainly the story of Harry’s fixation on solving the mystery of a disemboweled young woman whose dead body was found in an isolated location under the Williamsburg Bridge near the East River. Adele plays a much lesser, but important, role in the plot.It turns out that the victim was on [...]

    2. It was ok. I have only just finished it and I can't remember anything that really stood out. None of the bad guys are particularly memorable. I do get a wee bit annoyed when the good guys (police) bend the rules to get their required result, I think that there are a lot of incompetencies in policing, but very few would go to the extent that Harry Corbin went through to get his man. Mind you, he did want his own justice. Some of the editing seemed pretty average, but I'm not sure if it was the ed [...]

    3. This murder mystery falls into the category of hard boiled mysteries (in my book at least) and while tht is not a genre that I am all that fond of, I did really enjoy this book. Harry Corbin is a cop who's case is an eviscerated immigrant prostitute who was pregnant at the time of her death--he doesn't even have her name, but he methodically goes about finding out who she is, who brought her into the country, gets a bit of the 'do-gooder' bug and tries to save soem of her compatriots at the same [...]

    4. Had the opportunity to meet the author at an event at The Whitney Book Corner. Bought his book, not really expecting much. Was pleasanly surprised to read a well paced, involving, mystery. Set in NYC( where Knightly served as a cop for many years) the book features a hard boiled detective investigating the murder of a young woman whose gutted body is dumped near the East River. Looking forward to reading more from this local author.

    5. New author, good read. Storyline was very interesting with disgraced cop, solving a complicated murder, but who has a confidence in himself as an interrogator. I enjoyed the authors description of the character's thought process going into an interview. Don't see that often. Definitely recommend this author and book.

    6. A nourish police procedural set in New York City that touches on the victimization of refugees and its associated crimes. Our hero is likeable and unflawed, for a change. His relationships with his lover, his superior, his colleagues, however, are complex and beg further explanation in future books which I hope are forthcoming. And I liked to Ole and Sven jokes.

    7. A body of a young girl is found murdered and gutted. The story goes into illegals slave trading. The story tells about life styles that I do not experience. An interesting story, probably a better than a TV show. The description of the politics of the NYPD probably is not completely accurate but it may provide an idea of how the department might work.

    8. I don't usually read such hard-boiled mysteries but I met the author. And I loved this book. A great relationship between Harry Corbin and his love, Adele. (Knightly does very well with his female characters). I enjoyed the mystery as well and the nuanced ethics. Knightly is also a good writer. His prose is spare but forceful and interesting. I wish he wrote his novels faster.

    9. I like the main detective here a lot and this is a well-told story. There are a number of different threads and suspects and it keeps you guessing. The bad guys are a little flat, but still recommend.
