1845: New York City forms its first police force. The great potato famine hits Ireland. These two events will change New York City forever. The image of a brutal killer is slowly revealed and anti-Irish rage infects the city, and the reluctant copper star is engaged in a battle that may cost him everything.
From the Publisher:
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.
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.

Praise

"Vivid period details, fully formed characters, and a blockbuster of a twisty plot put Faye in a class with Caleb Carr." (starred review) 01/16/2012

"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 . . ." 01/15/2012

"Faye's language is appropriately florid, even flowery, dotted with slang and research. A treat for readers obsessed with Manhattan history." - Deirdre Donahue 03/15/2012
