      Great follow up to an even greater book!

      I tried and tried to finish this book. But after three months of falling asleep, I just can't I loved "The Alienist," and this book has an equally interesting story, but MAN is it sloooow. Too slow for me. Also, it has a lot of typos/grammatical mistakes, which are a big turn off and a big contradiction to the book's otherwise immaculate diction. Maybe someday I'll finish it.or the ending.

      This is actually two books. The Alienist is one of my favorite historical mysteries. The characters and story are very well developed and of their time. I liked the sequel, but not quite as much. The change of narator was not as strong. I always wanted another sequel from the female character's perspective.

    • Donna says:

      As always a great story combined with factual history thrown in to give an indepth depiction of the period. Carr delves into the underbelly which was the hardscrapple New York City streets. A tour de force which is hard for other authors to attain. My only wish is for this author to write more books!!!!! Bravo!

      Five stars for the pure candy corn delight of a read that is "The Alienist". Can't say the same for the sequel which is also part of the set, "Angel of Darkness". However, if you ever felt like you were a member of the Blood Hound Gang then The Alienist is the book for you.

      I didn't have any expectations when I picked up this book but I really liked it. Carr really draws the characters beautifully and the setting is as clear as can be. Haven't read Angel of Darkness yet.

    • Stacey says:

      The Alienist is one of my all time favorite books. Mr. Carr casts an amazing picture of Teddy Roosevelt's Manhattan, at a time when the serial killer phenomenon was just being noticed in the civilized world. Very compelling thriller, with a very vivid depiction of historical Manhattan.

      Good but not as good as The Alienist

    • Lauren Arbolino says:

      The Alienist is one of my favorite reads and rereads. If you like a mystery and a psychological thriller, this is historical fiction at its best.

    • Neva says:

      The Alienist is probably my favorite book of all time!!

    • Randy Carlson says:

      Read both - you won't be disappointed.

    • Eric says:

      The Alienist is an awesome historical fiction detective novel set in turn of the century New York. The sequel, Angel of Darkness, proved he was a one-hit-wonder

    • Lynn Mclaughlin says:

      Loved this one too! Haven't read anything else by him that even approached these first two. ( The Alienist & The Angel of Darkness)

    • Karen says:

      Not as good as the alienist

    • Guy says:

      Loved these 1800's era CSI books.

    • Grace says:

      Not as good as the Alienist but it was satisfying.

    • Robert says:

      This is actually two books. I read The Alienist and loved it. I am currently reading Angel of Darkness and can't put it down!

      Waiting for a third Kreizler book someday
