Praise
"Vivid period details, fully formed characters, and a blockbuster of a twisty plot put Faye in a class with Caleb Carr." (starred review)
"No one is precisely what they seem in Faye's richly imagined, superbly plotted narrative, which delivers not one, not two, but three bravura twists . . ."
"Faye's language is appropriately florid, even flowery, dotted with slang and research. A treat for readers obsessed with Manhattan history."
From the Publisher
Annotation When Timothy Wilde, a member of New York City's newly formed police force, discovers a mass grave containing several brutally disfigured street urchins, he is thrust into a maelstrom of political and religious tensions. As Wilde tracks the killer through the streets of 1840s New York, he contends with anti-Catholic zealots, the Democratic political machine, nativist gangs, and his own family troubles. Lyndsay Faye has crafted an atmospheric historical thriller, and many readers will hope for a sequel featuring the savvy and appealing Wilde.
Editors Note Joining the newly formed NYPD at the height of Ireland's 19th-century potato famine, Timothy reluctantly assumes his duties in a notorious slum district, where in the middle of the night he hears a little girl's claim that dozens of bodies have been buried in a local forest. 60,000 first printing.
