This article looks at three New York crime novels by Reggie Nadelson - Disturbed Earth (2004), Red Hook (2005) and Manhattan 62 (2014). It argues that the atmosphere in these stories is, partly in response to 9/11, exaggeratedly apocalyptic, but that ultimately they emphasise historical continuities and reject apocalyptic thinking.
