Summary è The Alienist 102 Read ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ Caleb Carr Caleb Carr ↠ 2 Summary When The Alienist was first published in 1994 it was a major phenomenon spending six months on the New York Times bestseller list receiving critical acclaim and selling millions of copies This modern classic continues to be a touchstone of historical suspense fiction for readers everywhereThe year is 1896 The city is New York Newspaper reporter John Schuyler Moore is summoned by his friend. New TV series based on the book is showing on TNT and launching January 22nd 2018 I caught a vague glimpse of human flesh glowing in the moonlight We took a few steps closer and then I made out plainly the figure of a naked young boy on his knees His hands had been bound behind his back causing his head to rest on the stone surface of the promenade and his feet were similarly tied A gag had been wrapped around his head holding his painted mouth open at a painful angle His face was glistening with tears but he was alive Some demented fiend is leaving mutilated and brutalized corpses of young boys all over New York City It is 1896 and Theodore Roosevelt is the newly appointed police commissioner In a highly unorthodox move he appoints his old friends Dr Laszlo Kreizler Alienist and John Schuyler Moore journalist to a special task force to hunt down this killer and bring him to justice Too many of the cops in the New York system are just criminals with badges and interested in graft and corruption than finding a killer especially one who is murdering nancy boy prostitutes Hurry or a child will dieWhat the heck is an Alienist you might ask Alienist is an archaic term for a psychiatrist or psychologist Despite falling out of favor by the middle of the twentieth century it received renewed attention when used in the title of Caleb Carr s novel The Alienist 1994 Although currently not often used in common parlance the term alienist is still employed in psychiatric hospitals to describe those mental health professionals who evaluate defendants to determine their competency to stand trial However in this context professionals are often referred to as forensic psychologists Kreizler is an unmistakable unusual character that once met you d never forget him His black eyes so much like a large bird s flitted about the paper as he shifted from one foot to the other in sudden uick movements He held the Times in his right hand and his left arm underdeveloped as the result of a childhood injury was pulled in close to his body The left hand occasionally rose to swipe at his neatly trimmed mustache and the small patch of beard under his lip His dark hair cut far too long to meet the fashion of the day and swept back on his head was moist for he always went hatless and this along with the bobbing of his face at the pages before him only increased the impression of some hungry restless hawk determined to wring satisfaction from the worrisome world around him These are early days for profiling serial killers but Kreizler and his team are using the evidence they are collecting to build a file that slowly adds shape and substance to the shadowy figure killing these young boys Poverty insures that there are no shortage of disadvantaged immigrant boys to replace the ones who are being culled from the herd For most of New York these murders are merely a brief distraction with their coffee or a topic for repartee over dinner For Kreizler and Moore it is a situation that becomes sinister and diabolical the they learn about the killer Hurry or a child will dieThey add a pair of incorruptible brothers to their team and a police secretary named Sara Howard Kreizler has made a habit of collecting unusual people over the years He also has several ex criminals working for him who add some muscle and street smarts to the group The trail of this killer sends some of them out west to see if his origins will give them any clues to his motivations In NY they interview boys in places like Paresis Hall where the skin trade is exploited and soiled doves are 12 years old or even younger They troll the seamiest gin mills and gangster hangouts looking for any information that will help them close in on this fiendish killer Brushing the grime soot and filth from their close encounters with the sordid nightlife are contrasted with their enjoyment of the splendors of the opera house and the delicious famous Delmonicos Restaurant Hurry or a child will dieTheir investigation also brings them in contact with the world famous Black Library owned by the very wealthy J P Morgan It is fascinating how the most unseemly seedier sides of town always seem to intersect with the most affluent elite society There are secrets masked by the silk wallpaper and hidden behind brocade curtains This is the second time I ve read this book The first time was back in 1994 when it was first released and both times I ve been struck with the authenticity of experiencing Victorian New York from the locations disreputable and elegant we are allowed to visit during the investigation to the fog strewn streets as they race to catch a killer before he can strike again If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at
