El Angel de La Oscuridad : Caleb Carr :
Carr angrl so good that before you realize it you are in Old New York at the turn of the century, and so in-love with these people that you hate to leave them for sleep or work. Both were tremendous bestsellers, and this second one mentions frequently that the group was involved in many other cases, both all together and, for Sara Howard, by herself, so there’s plenty of other potential material to write about To ask other readers questions about The Angel of Darknessplease sign up.
Carr brings a wonderful combination of the story-teller’s craft and osvuridad history-lover’s attention to accuracy and detail to his work. Published inthis has been the last in the series, and you have to wonder why.
Doctor Kreizler and his pals pursue the trail of Libby Hatch, identified as the kidnapper of the daughter of the Spanish ambassador.
Kreizler, and in “The Angel of Darkness” Stevie will grow up and face tragedy of his own. Sometimes it did feel like Carr was dwelling too long on certain past incidents or backgrounds that, at least to me, were not that interesting, though not often.
There are moments of action and suspense that keep you turning pages as quickly as you can read. During Libby’s prosecution, her defendant attorney, Dr. When I finished that story, I was very curious for more details. Carr has written plays and movie screenplays, one of which, Bad Attitudes was made into a TV movie in Once again, Caleb Carr proves his brilliant ability to re-create the past, both high life and low. Told from the point of view of Stevie the Stovetop most of the gang from the Alienist is back to solve the case of a kidnapped baby girl.
Also, another annoyance I had with the book was the frequent introduction of historic persons from the era as fictionalized characters. Whereas Carr jumped through hoops to show how Beecham was understandable and occasionally sympathetic, Libby Hatch gets no such courtesies.
If there is anything that is going to stop mankind from being such a beastly, destructive creature, it is reason.
Now, 6 years later, all I could think about was how ridiculous the narration was. When that last socuridad is turned you will do so reluctantly, sad that such a great book has ended. Really three and a half, but I rounded up to four.
I was particularly affected by Stevie’s love for Kat, the pre-adole What fl I say? Like the previous book, there were some cameos with great historical figures. Even if I haven’t read the first book of this series, The Alienistit didn’t compromise this reading.
As with The Alienist many historical figures make an appearance and for the most part enhance my enjoyment of the story. Despite the serial killer’s mutilations of children in “the Alienist”, I found the killer in “The Angel of Darkness” much more terrifying, although not at first.
The cast is all here, and a few more characters show up, including one of the all-time bad women you’ll ever read about–who unfortunately reminded me of a few people I used to know, but that’s a review for another day. One woman brought one child to the hospital, dead. Want to Read saving….
One of the problems facing the historical fiction writer is how to portray the roles and treatment of marginalized peoples in earlier time periods. But really bothered me was the narration. At any rate, this one has more than a few things in common thematically with my own WIP, including how oscuridar are treated in a male-dominated society.
The Alienist was a fairly straightforward murder-mystery, while this was much more complicated. Thanks for telling us about the problem. I am stoked now!! Carr handles the role of women fairly deftly in this book: No, no – all the mighty weight of this sparkling society will come crashing down on our heads, too. Jun 05, Spiderorchid rated it liked it. Perhaps this isn’t quite as riveting anhel as freely-flowing as the The Alienist, as noted by others, but since we only have the two, it seems hardly fair to knock off a star for what the book isn’t, rather than celebrating how good it is.

Oct 25, Laura rated it really liked se Recommends it for: It is largely because these women were unable to satisfy society’s demand that they fill a particular role, that they turned to darker undertakings.
The Calrb swings his axe handle, Teddy catches it, tears it free, and smacks Goo Goo across the skull. Kreizler and his friends–high-living crime reporter John Schuyler Moore; indomitable, derringer-toting Sara Howard; the brilliant and bickering detective brothers Marcus and Lucius Isaacson; powerful and compassionate Cyrus Montrose; and Stevie Taggert, the boy Kreizler saved from a lq of street crime–have returned to their former pursuits and tried to forget the horror of the Beecham case.
This allowed me to leave I’ve always had a personal law that requires I finish any book I start. This review was written in the late nineties just for myselfand it was buried in amongst my things until today, when I uncovered the journal it was written in. Add Book Cover for New Edition.
