Product Details


“[A] page-turning thriller . . . For maximum enjoyment: surrender, reader.”The Wall Street Journal
“Every word of fiction Carr has produced seems to have been written in either direct or indirect conversation with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, even those that take place in contemporary times, like this one. . . .  [Surrender, New York] allows Carr to deploy his indisputable gift for the gothic and the macabre, and the pursuit is suspenseful and believable.”USA Today

“The crime novel, in its most serious form, has always been used to reflect trends and lament loss and clang the bell of warning to the ills of society. . . . In Surrender, New York, [Caleb Carr] has written an addictive contemporary crime procedural. . . . The story is imaginative and fulfilling, along the way revealing how so many are left in the shadows even in a prosperous nation. . . . It is hard to resist a character with such eloquent charm and a story with such deep meaning.”—Michael Connelly, The New York Times Book Review (cover review)

“[A] long-awaited return.”O: The Oprah Magazine

“[A] superb mystery . . . [that moves] at a swift and often terrifying pace. As in The Alienist, Carr triumphs at every twist and turn.”Providence Journal
“Chilling and suspenseful . . . a tale fit for the modern-day Conan Doyle.”Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Edgar Allan Poe would have understood this book and hailed it a masterpiece. . . . A terrific story with a great setting and a very modern social message.”The Globe and Mail

“[An] engrossing mystery.”Library Journal

“A compulsive read . . . Carr once again delivers a high-stakes thriller featuring a new band of clever, determined outcasts. . . . With gut-punching twists and the potential for a sequel, this intelligent, timely thriller will be savored by Carr’s fans and new readers alike.”Booklist (starred review)
“[A] whodunit that weds leisurely nineteenth-century storytelling with twenty-first-century unpleasantness . . . Carr’s story poses an utterly modern question: for a career-minded politico, which is worse, a child-neglect scandal or a serial killer on the loose? We get to see both at work, including some nicely nasty mayhem. . . . Carr’s many fans will find this well worth the wait.”Kirkus Reviews
