And the masks of the idyllic home and the sanctity of motherhood are the first and most untouchable of all. During Libby’s prosecution, her defendant attorney, Dr.
If you had told me I would be an artist or novelist when I grew up, I would have laughed in your face. This just seemed like a bad clone of that book where Carr was trying to incorporate the same elements. I read cleb book in the series, The Alienist, a few years ago and despite the mediocre writing, I really liked it a lot, particularly due to the psychological aspect of it.
It mostly consists of replacing the word “that” with “what” in his narration–which makes it colorful, but then he doesn’t do this when one of the other characters are talking.
It was wonderful to learn more about the characters and to jump in time, but I didn’t like Moore as much in this one as I had in the last. If there is anything that is going to stop mankind from being such a beastly, destructive creature, it is reason. Anyone whose brain chemistry or function might be remotely different dies.

I didn’t like some of the characterizations in the book, though. The characters were fleshed out and became real; aangel opposed to heroes, they were flawed people doing right. Second, the caleeb character who supposedly demonstrates how women can do bad things is so inconsistent! Jun 05, Spiderorchid rated it liked it. This was another solid book with a lot of historical influences and a very well built multiple crime case. As with The Alienist many historical figures make an appearance and for the most part enhance my enjoyment of the story.
This allowed me to leave I’ve always had a personal law ka requires I finish any book I start. These real-life women all killed their own children, and many of their men, to such a degree that you’d have to wonder if anyone in the legal or medical communities were paying attention.
May 21, Steven Belanger rated it it was amazing. It is a case fraught with danger, since Spain and the United States are on the verge of war. I love the glimpses of early 20th century New York life.

This may have titillated my paternal grandmother a bit. Not as fastly paced as the first book but definitely worth reading for whoever enjoyed “The Alienist. Stevie’s narration style is more laid back than Moore’s, but it soom becomes tiresome and gimmicky.
Each detail wonderfully adds understanding to every character and builds the plot. While the Alienist seem to be the classic of the two Dr. Angel of Darkness picks up soon after the previous case, and the action begins almost immediately.
A year has passed since Dr. Anyway, great writing, great historical detail, and some strong wistful nostalgia at the end that readers older than 30 should recognize, all coalesce in a novel that was quickly read and thoroughly appreciated.

Having Stevie as narrator was somewhat disappointing. One woman brought one child to the hospital, dead. The socio-politics described are too complex to go into here, but they are not calbe dismissed or ignored, and the reader may recognize some of what is described. I was a huge fan of Carr’s The Alienist and now want to go back and reread it.
She was pure, nasty evil, which was a lot of fun to read, but the best parts of the tale came i This review was written in the cagr nineties just for myselfand it was buried in amongst my things until today, when I uncovered the journal it dd written in. Overall another good addition on my historical crime shelf. Kreizler, of course posits that people become that laa as a result of their “social context.

Carr did a very good job in giving this sequel the proper twist. Emotional and driven, at times a little sluggish, it never failed to pick up speed and keep me going.
This installment was okay, but I didn’t enjoy it near as much as The Alienist. Society has a great problem accepting this deviation from what it considers normal, maternal instinct on the part of a woman, and hushes such incidents. Overall, a great sequel to the first Laszlo Kreizler novel, The Alienist! First was the application of forensic science in its infancy.
