Laszlo Kreizler, a pioneer in forensic psychiatry, tracked down the brutal serial killer John Beecham with the help of a team of trusted companions and a revolutionary application of the principles of his discipline.
First of all, the characters in the novel who espouse the author’s view are preachy, preachy, preachy. It should be pointed out that, by the end of the 19th century, many of the actual forensic tools were not available at anegl time, such as recognition of fingerprints, bullet’s tests and so on.
Finding the criminal was only a third of the story, the rest was the challenge of putting the criminal into justice – a slow painful methodical procedure was essential every step of the way. Set in the 19th century when crime fighting techniques were at their infancy I enjoyed hearing the theories behind fingerprinting, ballistics and using sketches of poss Fans of historical detectives and even the television show Criminal Minds will enjoy the sequel to The Alienist.

The Angel of Darkness Dr. Overall, a great sequel to the first Laszlo Kreizler novel, The Alienist! All those who read and loved Caleb Carr’s “The Alienist” were ecstatic to once again take a carriage ride over the cobblestone streets of Old New York as a mystery ajgel solved. Kreizler and his friends–high-living crime reporter John Claeb Moore; indomitable, derringer-toting Sara Howard; the brilliant and bickering detective brothers Marcus and Lucius Isaacson; powerful and compassionate Cyrus Montrose; and Stevie Taggert, the boy Kreizler saved from a life of street crime–have returned to their former pursuits and tried to forget the horror of the Beecham case.

Hunter or Hatch, or Frasier, Franklin I can’t wait to see that fight on-screen. Whereas Carr jumped through hoops to show how Beecham was understandable and occasionally sympathetic, Libby Hatch gets no such courtesies.

Caleb Carr: Quotes, and a List of Books by Author Caleb Carr
Carr brings a wonderful combination of the story-teller’s craft and the history-lover’s attention to accuracy and detail to his work. The Irishman swings his axe handle, Teddy catches it, tears it free, and smacks Goo Goo across the skull. Nowhere near as good as Carr’s first effort – The Alienist. Kriezler has taken in, and saved from a life of crime. It had all of the flaws of the first, and none of the charm. Maybe Cyrus’ representation worked a little better because he was integral to the group of sleuths in both books.
Carr is so good that before you realize it you are in Old New York at the turn of the century, and so in-love with these people that you hate to leave them for sleep or work.
This allowed me to leave a few Costco bestsellers from my mom’s pile out on the stoop for passersby with lower standards of literature, without going past that 25 page mark. In closing, let me simply say that this book was enjoyable. One woman brought one child to the hospital, dead.
