Description
A new breed of evil in Old New York
New York, 1886: Lower Manhattan's underworld is ruled by a new generation of cold-blooded criminals...Police Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt battles widespread corruption within the department's ranks...and a shockingly brutal murder sets off an investigation that could change crime-fighting forever.
In the middle of a wintry March night, New York Times reporter John Moore is summoned to the East River by his friend Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a brilliant pioneer in the new and much-maligned discipline of psychology, the emerging study of society's "alienated" mentally ill. There they view the horribly mutilated body of a young boy, a prostitute from one of Manhattan's infamous brothels. Supervised by Commissioner Roosevelt, the newsman and his "alienist" mentor embark on a revolutionary attempt to identify the killer by assembling his psychological profile — a dangerous quest that takes them into the tortured past and twisted mind of a murderer who has killed before...and will kill again before the hunt is over.
As rich in vivid period ambience as Ragtime and Time and Again, and as relentlessly suspenseful as Red Dragon or The Silence of the Lambs, The Alienist will take you to a New York that no longer exists — to confront an evil of timeless savagery.

A new breed of evil in Old New York

The year is 1896. The city is New York, and a serial killer is on the loose. Newspaper reporter John Schuyler Moore is summoned by his friend Dr. Laszlo Kreizler—a psychologist, or "alienist"—to view the horribly mutilated body of an adolescent boy abandoned on the unfinished Williamsburg Bridge. From there, the two embark on a revolutionary new effort in criminology: creating a psychological profile of the perpetrator based on the details of his crimes. They're soon joined by Sara Howard, the first woman hired by the New York City Police Department. The team's dangerous quest takes them into the tortured past and twisted mind of a murderer who will kill again before their hunt is over.

Part Arthur Conan Doyle, part The Silence of the Lambs, The Alienist conjures up Gilded Age Manhattan, with its tenements and mansions, corrupt cops and flamboyant gangsters, shining opera houses and seamy gin mills. It's the "h

A new breed of evil in Old New York
New York, 1886: Lower Manhattan's underworld is ruled by a new generation of cold-blooded criminals...Police Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt battles widespread corruption within the department's ranks...and a shockingly brutal murder sets off an investigation that could change crime-fighting forever.
In the middle of a wintry March night, New York Times reporter John Moore is summoned to the East River by his friend Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a brilliant pioneer in the new and much-maligned discipline of psychology, the emerging study of society's "alienated" mentally ill. There they view the horribly mutilated body of a young boy, a prostitute from one of Manhattan's infamous brothels. Supervised by Commissioner Roosevelt, the newsman and his "alienist" mentor embark on a revolutionary attempt to identify the killer by assembling his psychological profile — a dangerous quest that takes them into the tortured past and twisted mind of a murderer who has killed before...and will kill again before the hunt is over.
As rich in vivid period ambience as Ragtime and Time and Again, and as relentlessly suspenseful as Red Dragon or The Silence of the Lambs, The Alienist will take you to a New York that no longer exists — to confront an evil of timeless savagery.

        May 29, 1995
        Set in 1896, Carr's novel about a serial killer lose in New York City was a 25-week PW bestseller.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: It is 1896, and a serial murderer is on the loose in New York City. The twist here is that the unofficial investigation (sanctioned by Chief of Police Theodore Roosevelt) uses a doctor specializing in the new science of psychology to help solve the crimes. The result is a fascinating discussion of a city poised on the edge of modernity, expertly narrated by George Guidall. Besides creating numerous characters, Guidall builds excitement with masterful pacing, effective pauses, and an omnipresent understanding of the text. Guidall uses his voice both to smooth out Carr's narrative wrinkles and to capture a city about to emerge as a major force in the twentieth century. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine
