    The year is 1896, the place, New York City. On a cold March night New York Times reporter John Schuyler Moore is summoned to the East River by his friend and former Harvard classmate Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a psychologist, or "alienist." On the unfinished Williamsburg Bridge, they view the horribly mutilated body of an adolescent boy, a prostitute from one of Manhattan's infamous brothels.

    lyl says: "Outstanding on several levels."
    "Absolutely awesome!"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Alienist - Enter the mind of a killer ...


    Any additional comments?

    Getting ready to read the sequel - The Angel of Darkness. I heard it was just as good.
