Publisher's Summary

In Brooklyn in 1899, Dr. Noah Whitestone is called urgently to his wealthy neighbor's house to treat a five-year-old boy with a shocking set of symptoms. When the child dies suddenly later that night, Noah is accused by the boy's regular physician - the powerful and politically connected Dr. Arnold Frias - of prescribing a lethal dose of laudanum.

To prove his innocence, Noah must investigate the murder - for it must be murder - and confront the man he is convinced is the real killer. His investigation leads him to a reporter for a muckraking magazine and a beautiful radical editor who are convinced that a secret experimental drug from Germany has caused the death of at least five local children. By degrees, Noah is drawn into a dangerous world of drugs, criminals, and politics, which threatens not only his career, but also his life.

Couldn't get any worse

I doubt if i ever did or ever could read a book as bad as this one. It was unreal, confusing, complicated, muddled, & leaving me with questions about the author. The story was mish mash, disconnected, stupid, ridiculous & boring. Take all the stars away & that would be my review!!!!!! and as for the narrator Take him away too!
