Product Details


Praise for The Fatal Flame:

“As always in this series, the research is impeccable and the period ambience dazzling.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Lyndsay Faye’s New York trilogy is immersive, compelling, convincing, and yes, thrilling.  Read it today for solid-gold entertainment, but don’t be surprised to see it taught in college tomorrow.” –Lee Child 

“Faye masterfully evokes the turbulence of mid-nineteenth-century New York, with its Tammany Hall politics, burgeoning conflict over abolition, and rising wave of feminism, as Irish girls, fleeing famine, are forced into prostitution or poorly paid labor as seamstresses.”  —Booklist Starred Review

“As in her previous books, Faye’s diligence in researching the period is manifest, and readers will feel transported back to mid-19th-century Manhattan.” –Publisher’s Weekly Starred Review

“Faye’s re-creations of mid-19th-century New York [in The Fatal Flame] are rich with exotic sights and smells, as well as delightfully eccentric personalities.” —J. Kingston Pierce for Kirkus

Praise for Lyndsay Faye:

 “[A]tmospheric and exciting . . . [Seven for a Secret] is swift but poignant, full of violent encounters and thrilling escapes.” —The Wall Street Journal
“This gripping, beautifully written, chilling, heartbreaking, and exciting novel . . . [Seven for a Secret] is an amazingly rich story, worthy of the word ‘epic’ . . . definitely one of the finest crime novels of the year.” —Mystery Scene
“[Gods of Gotham is a] rollicking historical novel . . . a sensational account. . . .”
The New York Times Book Review
“If your concept of paradise is popping in a DVD of Gangs of New York while rereading Caleb Carr’s The Alienist, then put Lyndsay Faye’s The Gods of Gotham on your to-buy list.”
