This installment was okay, but I didn’t enjoy it near as much as The Alienist.
It is a case fraught with danger, since Spain and the United States are on the verge of war. Despite the serial killer’s mutilations of children in “the Alienist”, I found the killer in “The Angel of Darkness” much more terrifying, although not at first. Also this time the book follows more the way the American Judicial System worked in that peculiar period of time and her chase has a small percentage in the whole story.
There you can find reviews, details and a wealth of historical information about the settings and backgrounds to Carr’s novels. We don’t learn too much about Cyrus in Angel, other than he has a good relationship with the narrator, young Stevie, and is well-liked and appreciated by the other main characters.

Or maybe he Carr just has the doctor character repeat the point so many times because he doesn’t trust the readers to get it if it isn’t spelled out over and over. First episode should air some time in Although I read this in the last millenium, calrb wrote most of the above review then, it has never been posted before.
All in all a very good read that dd me curious about the first book in this series this one was given to me as a gift.

Laszlo Kreizler, a pioneer in forensic psychiatry, tracked down the brutal serial killer John Beecham with the help of a team of trusted companions and a revolutionary application of the principles of his discipline.
Everyone was nicely blended in, it was delicious. What calleb should be said about this crar
It’s disappointing to read this kind of crap from someone you know can actually write. I wish Caleb Carr had written more books with these characters because I miss them already. View all 3 comments.
This was another solid book with a lot of historical influences and a very well built multiple crime case. While AOD is dl than the Alienist, the added length is justified with a more satisfying complicated plot and better character development.

I did like the idea that “new” techniques like fingerprinting and criminal sketching were in their infancy as far as police policy went, but it wasn’t nearly enough to make this book anything better than fe OK read.
