What other readers are saying about this title:
Beeb said:
Fast-paced and gripping, infused with a historian's exactitude, The Alienist conjures up the Gilded Age and its untarnished underside: verminous tenements and opulent mansions, corrupt cops and flamboyant gangsters, shining opera houses and seamy gin mills. Here is a New York during an age when questioning society's belief that all killers are born, not made, could have unexpected and mortal consequences.

This is probably the very best book I have ever read. Exquisitely written, but fast-paced and tawdry enough to be just a great read.
