Reviews

"Will remind many of Caleb Carr at his best." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The author has inevitably been compared to Caleb Carr. . . . She does an outstanding job of blending historical detail with engaging characters and a suspenseful plot." --The Denver Post

"Pintoff excavates a rich vein of early criminology. . . . She also delivers a gripping detective story." --Booklist

"Nicely contrasts academic theorizing with the reality of police detection set against the backdrop of a vividly depicted turn-of-the-century Gotham. Recommend to readers who enjoy historicals of this period, such as Caleb Carr's The Alienist and Ann Stamos's Bitter Tide." --Library Journal (starred review)
