liked it

Historical fiction with a murder mystery = right up my alley. One of my favorite books is The Alienist. The author here does a good job of portraying NYC in time when I'm glad I wasn't alive. If it can smell pretty bad here in the summer today...

I loved the main character - a kind of hard -boiled noir-type detective and I think there will be a series of these books with him. And the writing is good but this particular story didn't grab me.
