From the bestselling author of THE ALIENIST, this is his second tale of murderous deeds in 19th century New York. The book is a taut drama packed with memorable characters. I live in old downtown New York (and love history as well as mysteries) and I especially enjoy how well Caleb Carr has recreated the look and feel of (the optimism and depravity, the glory and darkness) of old New York and its multifarious nefarious denizens. If you like the life and times of Theodore Roosevelt, Jack Finney's TIME AND AGAIN or the film THE NAKED CITY (even though it is a different time period) you'll get totally caught up in ANGEL OF DARKNESS.

"As winning a historical thriller as The Alienist. . . . The reader keeps right on turning the pages."
--The New York Times
"A RIPPING YARN TOLD WITH VERVE, INTENSITY, AND A FEEL FOR HISTORICAL DETAIL . . . Once again we are careening around the gaslighted New York that Carr knows, and depicts, so well."
--The New York Times Book Review
"GRIPPING . . . Carr is at his strongest, exploring the dark underside of the human psyche and ferreting out the terrors and tragedies that drive men--and women--to kill. . . . In Libby Hatch, Carr has created a villain whose cunning is nearly equal to his detectives' crime-solving prowess. . . . The mystery is plotted with military precision."
"[A] WHOPPING THRILLER . . . Carr keeps us racing along with him to the very end."
--The Washington Post Book World
"FASCINATING . . . GOOD COURTROOM DRAMA . . . In a brilliant bit of historical casting, Clarence Darrow, a rising courtroom wizard from Chicago, turns up to . . . defend the villain at a tense upstate New York murder trial."
