Editorial Reviews

Review

“A first-rate tale of crime and punishment that will keep readers guessing until the final pages.”Entertainment Weekly

“Caleb Carr’s rich period thriller takes us back to the moment in history when the modern idea of the serial killer became available to us . . . [and] tracks the efforts of a team of farsighted investigators working frantically to solve a string of hideous murders. . . . Absorbing . . . suspenseful . . . gratifying.”The Detroit News

“A high-spirited, charged-up and unfailingly smart thriller.”Los Angeles Times

“You can smell the fear in the air.”The New York Times

“Keeps readers turning pages well past their bedtime.”San Francisco Chronicle
 
“Engrossing.”Newsweek

“[A] delicious premise . . . Its settings and characterizations are much more sophisticated than the run-of-the-mill thrillers that line the shelves in bookstores.”The Washington Post Book World

“The method of the hunt and the disparate team of hunters lift the tale beyond the level of a good thriller—way beyond. . . . A remarkable combination of historical novel and psychological thriller.”The Buffalo News

“Mesmerizing.”Detroit Free Press

“Remarkable . . . The reader is taken on a whirlwind tour of the Gilded Age metropolis, climbing up tenement stairs, scrambling across rooftops, and witnessing midnight autopsies. . . . A breathtaking, finely crafted mystery.”Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Gripping, atmospheric . . . intelligent and entertaining.”USA Today

“Harrowing, fascinating . . . will please fans of Ragtime and The Silence of the Lambs.”The Flint Journal
