NYC in the late s is brought to vivid life again, but with a bit more of a bittersweet tinge to the tale, as Stevie also writes Almost as quick a read as its predecessor, this one is told from the point of view of Stevie, from his cigarette shop, as he looks back on his past.

Now, 6 years later, all I could think about was how ridiculous the narration was. Paperbackpages. I wish Caleb Carr had written more books with these characters because I miss them already.

Other readers have said that this does not compare to The Alienist, but personally I thought it was a very good follow-up.

The socio-politics described are too complex to go into here, but they are not easily dismissed or ignored, and the reader may recognize some of what is described.

I salute Carr for writing the first decent character of a Filipino in fiction that I have read so far. I didn’t like some of the characterizations in the book, though. One thing I appreciated about the book was how dark it got at times. The book had its very interesting moments the search through the killer’s house, the rumble with the street gang but so much of the story was fluff cleverly written to make you think it worthy of rereading that it was, at times, frustrating oscurisad push on to the next page.

During Libby’s prosecution, her defendant attorney, Dr. Despite the serial killer’s mutilations of children in “the Alienist”, I found the killer in “The Angel of Darkness” much more terrifying, although not at first.

As I got oscurodad it narrowed down to a more specific focus on individual violence. This just seemed like a bad clone of that book where Carr was trying to incorporate the same elements.

The plot starts with the kidnapping of a Spanish diplomat’s baby but then the main story switched to the suspect of this crime, Libby Hatch, a nurse who is the suspect murderess of her own children. It was a fantastic novel filled with fun surprises, nice if somewhat strange appearances of actual historical figures, and plenty of suspense, thrills, and emotion. I guess the problem with the plot is that – as another review here put it – not much is happening, as most of the story concerns the investigators researching the suspect’s past crimes while the actual case of kidnapping is put on the backburner for the majority of the Sadly, this sequel to “The Alienist” is missing the former’s drive and suspense, but it is nice to meet the characters again this time from a different perspective due to a different narrator and the case itself is interesting.

A Spanish diplomat’s child is kidnapped in public, and the mother sees her daughter a few days I really enjoyed The Alienist, the first book by Caleb Carr about Dr.

The change of narrator is refreshing at first, especially in the introductory chapter when it was revealed that the manuscripts of the Alienist and The Angel of Darkness were part of a bet made by John Schuyler Moore and Taggert.

I can’t wait to see that fight on-screen. Carr is looking at the female as serial killer, in late 19th century New York City. Lazlo Kreizler uses psychiatry to paint a portrait of a very dangerous woman.
