The Angel of Darkness book. A year has passed since Dr. Laszlo In The Angel of Darkness, Caleb Carr brings back the vivid world of his bestselling The Alienist but with a twist: this story is told by the former street urchin Stevie Taggert, whose rough life has given him wisdom beyond his years. Thus New York City, and the groundbreaking alienist Dr. Kreizler himself, are seen anew.

The Angel Of Darkness. A year after the events of The Alienist, the characters are brought together to investigate a crime committed in the New York of the 1890s. A child, the daughter of Spanish diplomats, disappears, but there is no ransom note. The prime suspect is a nurse connected to the deaths of three infants.

Once again, Caleb Carr proves his brilliant ability to re-create the past, both high life and low. Fast-paced and chilling, The Angel of Darkness is a tour de force, a novel of modern evil in old New York. Praise for The Angel of Darkness. A ripping yarn told with verve, intensity, and a feel for historical detail. Carr is at his strongest, exploring the dark underside of the human psyche and ferreting out the terrors and tragedies that drive.

The Angel of Darkness (stylized as The Alienist: Angel of Darkness ) is a TNT original drama series based on the novel of the same name by Caleb Carr. It is a sequel to ‘The Alienist’ and part of TNT's Suspense Collection.

Great continuation of some of the characters from the Alienist but a stand alone story. I always tell people you can pick up "Angel of Darkness" without the background history from the Alienist. Love the suspenseful writing style and steady pace, very hard to put the book down. As always love the details and descriptions the author,is so great at and makes the reader feel as a part of the environment. Love the psychological aspects of the story and how modern criminologist had there start in the field.

In my recent nostalgic look back at books I’ve read and enjoyed from a few decades ago after re-reading Caleb Carr’s “The Alienist” decided to also read his sequel to that story, “The Angel of Darkness”. In it Carr reunites his team of memorable characters from “The Alienist”; Dr. Laszlo Kreizler a psychiatrist (or “alienist” in turn of the last century parlance), newspaperman John Schulyer Moore, former NYPD secretary, pistol-packing Sara Howard, and Kreisler’s ward former street ruffian Stevie “The Stevepipe” Taggart, ably assisted by NYPD detective brothers Marcus and Lucius Isaacson .

Set in old time New York City Mr. Carr captures the period nicely and the setting is as much of a character as any of the people we encounter. Told from Stevie’s perspective as if told in a memoir we find Kreizler in a bit of a funk since a child under his care at his institute committed suicide and he’s under investigation. Banned from his workplace until things are sorted out the good doctor needs a diversion and a child abduction from the family of a Spanish diplomat serves the purpose. Matters become complicated quickly and soon our investigators find themselves on the trail of a sinister woman serial killer of small children (including her own).

Carr is an excellent writer but unfortunately this novel moves at a glacial pace and the level of suspense never approaches what readers experienced in “The Alienist”. The plot slows down even more so when the team takes a road trip to upstate New York to Ballston Spa and Saratoga to investigate the background of their suspected murderess, Libby Hatch (AKA Elspeth Hunter among others). Things move very slowly at this point until eventually Kreizler & Co. assemble enough evidence (some of it unethically manufactured) to see Hatch arrested and put on trial for the murder of her two young sons years earlier. There’s a fairly long, boring trial that’s only enlivened by the appearance of none other than famous defense attorney Clarence Darrow and his court room theatrics. Things proceed badly for the good guys but when some last minute evidence promises to put our killer behind bars she stages a daring and deadly escape. The pace then picks up as our heroes relentless track Hatch down ending with a climactic rooftop confrontation (just like in “The Alienist”) and justice is finally served. The reappearance of Kreizler’s of friend former NYPD Police Commissioner turned Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Theodore Roosevelt is a welcome event but I wish Carr contrived to bring TR on board sooner than later.

It took me some time to get through “The Angel of Darkness” and I remember that it was a bit of a slog when I read it back in the 90’s too. These are solid characters placed in a fascinating historical period and despite the pacing problems in this book it’s surprising that Mr. Carr chose not to bring them back for a third adventure. Perhaps the recent adaptation of “The Alienist” by TNT into a series might motivate him to do just that.

I knew from the first “Alienist” book that the story could slow down with all the historical anecdotal details and facts but I liked it enough to go forward and read on. It didn’t disappoint. This book is told from a different perspective, one of Dr. Kreizler’s the so called Alienist of the book, employees. The first book was a story told by a newspaper journalist who was a close friend of Dr. Kreizler. So the books each had a different personality while maintaining the same frame of reference, pacing, mystery and suspense. The historical detail was less burdensome in this story perhaps because of the supposed youth and therefore I would assume less interest on the behalf of the storyteller on many of the broader political schemes and intrigues of the time. Yet there was enough local historical detail relevant to a young street urchin to make it clear that there was a tremendous amount of research and accurate historical background included in the story to make it just a little more interesting.

I didn't realize the length of this book, but decided to read it since it was book 2 of Caleb Carr's story regarding Dr. Lazlo Kreizler, the Alienist. I found it interesting that it was written in the first person, but by one of the characters in the first book, which gave a totally different perspective on how he viewed all the other characters and how close he had become to the good Doctor. Although it was an easy read and an extremely interesting story, what I found distracting were all the typographical errors throughout the book. This shouldn't be. When I saw the first one, I thought, okay, this is a very long story, so someone missed this typo. But as the story progressed, there were more and more. Each time I came across one, my flow of reading stopped and I found it to be a distraction. Maybe the next print run this can be corrected.
All in all, the story was interesting, the main characters from the first book were still a "team" and familiar names were introduced which almost made this believable.
