A new breed of evil has come to old New York. The horribly mutilated body of a young male prostitute turns up in the East River in 1896. Reporter John Moore and his mentor Laszlo Kreizler decide to investigate.
Great listen. Unfortunately it is abridged.

Good as far as it went
Would you listen to The Alienist again? Why?
No. A good enough story, but not sufficient for a second listen.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Obviously the heroine.
What about Edward Herrmann’s performance did you like?
Yes, well done
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
