The Alienist

The Alienist

The internationally bestselling historical thriller, soon to be a Netflix series starring Luke Evans, Dakota Fanning and Daniel Brühl.

New York City, 1896. Hypocrisy in high places is rife, police corruption commonplace, and a brutal killer is terrorising young male prostitutes.

But as the body count rises, Roosevelt swallows his doubts and turns to the eminent alienist Dr Laszlo Kreizler to put a stop to the bloody murders – giving Kreizler a chance to take him further into the dark heart of criminality, and one step closer to death.
