Yes I would. The book is full of suspense and wonder from the very beginning. I love how real historical figures were injected into the novel. That gave it an almost "based on a true story" feel.
Yes, it did. I just KNEW I knew who the killer was going to be. At every step I was trying to figure out what new evidence would point to someone I had thought about.
It's a tie between Laszlo Kreizler and Teddy Roosevelt. I loved Laszlo's nonchalant personal and professional style. He was a champion for what he believed in. Teddy was a technology pioneer and a sure-fire advocate for justice and ethics. His progressive personality was like a fiery spark that would suddenly burst into flames in the midst of a dark room.
The Alienist - Enter the mind of a killer ...
Getting ready to read the sequel - The Angel of Darkness. I heard it was just as good.
