Author Essay

I was so excited when I heard that we would be publishing Caleb Carr’s follow-up to his first book, THE ALIENIST.  ANGEL OF DARKNESS starrs the same characters whom I loved in THE ALIENIST: Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, Cyrus, Stevie, Lucius and Marcus, Miss Howard, and Mr. Moore.  And like THE ALIENIST, ANGEL OF DARKNESS describes New York circa the late 19th century.

It’s a real thrill to read this book and imagine where all of the action is taking place.  After reading both of Carr’s works, I’ve taken his books with me and walked through the different New York neighborhoods that he so wonderfully illustrates.  It’s really fun to look at the neighborhoods as they stand today and to picture how they were back then.  It’s also interesting to note how neighborhoods have changed demographically.
