Absolutely wonderful book - excellently written and researched. It's a murder mystery in mid 19th century New York City. New York is a great place to live but not back then! Lyndsay Faye has a wonderful command of the English language and she writes beautifully and accurately about a time most people would rather forget. Her writing is so good that you'll believe you are actually living in Manhattan in the 1840's. The crimes described are very grim; and so are the politics. The characters are vivid and realistic. This is a must book.
