Thank you @Chrissyreadit for recommending this on audio. It was so good! Set in NYC in 1845, Timothy Wilde reluctantly becomes a copper star in the newly formed police force. He is set on the trail of a serial killer when a girl covered in blood runs into him as he returns home. Faye‘s use of the criminal slang of the time, called Flash, works really well. Although set in different historical periods, this reminded me a little of The Alienist.⬇️

Bookzombie Unexpectedly this fills the #politicalintrigue slot for #Booked2019 as politics play a part in the story.
I‘m also a little sad that this is only a trilogy as I already love several of the characters.

If I‘m honest, maybe I didn‘t give you enough of a chance. I was dreading being with you. I‘m not proud of my behaviour, and I genuinely think that you deserve better. Your ratings are so high. I dreamed of your Gangs of New York level crime and violence, but, we just aren‘t meant to be. I‘m bailing. I might regret it, but not today. Sleep well, fair book. You‘ll find a new reader. 👋🏻👋🏻👋🏻

Timothy Wilde reluctantly accepts a job as a brand-new "copper star" (policeman) in NYC in 1845. One day on his beat he comes across a female child prostitute covered in blood. The ensuing investigation leads to the discovery of 19 bodies. Is it a serial killer who is targeting Irish Catholic children to push a political agenda? I loved the writing style -- the author does a great job with using vernacular that‘s true to the time period.

AmyG Reminds me a tiny bit of The Alienist. Sounds good! 10mo
lahousewyfe Just finished The Paragon Hotel and I'm now such a Lindsay Faye fan! I think this one is next on the list. 10mo
Amiable @AmyG Fun fact: my youngest son is named Caleb because I was reading “The Alienist” when I was pregnant with him, and I liked the way the name looked on the cover. 🙂 10mo

Amiable @AmyG Sadly, my son doesn‘t think it‘s that fun. Last year I gave him a copy of “The Alienist” for his birthday and after he read it he said, “so you named me after a book about a serial killer??” 😆 10mo
AmyG Ha! He is too funny. I got the name of my son from the movie Kramer vs Kramer. The actor who played the little boy is named Justin-and I fell in love wih that name. So I guess I named MY son after a woman who abandons her child. 🤣 (edited) 10mo

⭐⭐⭐⭐STARS
Intriguing and entertaining story about tha beginnings of the NYPD. The men who started the force of "copper stars". Timothy Wilde is charged with finding the killer of "kinchin-mabs" (slang for children taken into prostitution). Also the use of the street slang in the book is well done and worth the time to learn the terms, since many have entered the lexicon of today. Recommend! Will read more in this series

Melissa_J I liked this one, too. I really need to read the other two books in the trilogy! 10mo

After blazing through Jane Steele, I became a bonafide Lyndsey Faye fangirl, so hit this one next, and oh is it great. Pretty brutal content -- avoid if you can't stand descriptions of violence against children --- but it's also beautifully written, intelligent, and rich with empathy. Historical fiction is never just about the past.

Dealership towed car back and fixed it-picked it up yesterday. 5.

Have to be honest—for the first half or so, I enjoyed the book but that was it. I enjoyed it & appreciated the obvious research that went into writing about policing in mid-19th century NYC. And then 💥 POW 💥 it got really good & I raced to the end. Wonderful, eccentric characters, great historical detail, & a plot full of twists & turns ultimately made this a good read. A bit slow to begin but the book finished strong & I‘ll read the next.

I've never watched Gangs of New York but I want to see it after reading this book. I had a small inkling that life in 1840's New York wasn't swell for the poor members of society. But I had no idea that such hatred of Irish Catholics existed. Wow.

I really enjoyed this book. The gritty ugliness of poverty in 1840's New York, the stark determination to move forward, the will to survive if not thrive. An amazing picture. I'll definitely re-read this one. For some the language has been a hang up but I have found that I really love it when a book expands my vocabulary.

We're damaged right down to the last man, I've discovered, we 1845 star policemen. Perforated. There's something the city hasn't given us yet, or has taken away, a lacking shaped a little different every time. We're all missing bits & pieces. For each of us, there's a gap no one can quite ignore.

Finally finished this (with the help of my furry reading buddy). The crime at the center of this book's plot made it difficult to want to read it at times, which is why it took me awhile to finish, but it was a good book. Even though it is set in 1845, the prejudice against immigrants of a different religion seemed much too familiar, and makes me feel like this country has not made any progress with this issue.

I really enjoyed Lyndsay Fae's beautiful, elaborate prose and believable characters. The story is about New York City's 19th century, newly established police force, and in particular a young agent who tries to solve a serial murder case. Great historical elements. My only caveat with this author is that her stories are character driven, very literary, so pacing at times slows down notably, especially in her new book, Jane Steele.

Before Jane Steele, Lyndsay Faye wrote a trilogy of historical mysteries centered around the immigrant experience of the mid 19th century and the establishment of the New York City Police Department. It's protagonist is "Copper" Timothy Wilde and he is without a doubt one of my favorite literary characters ever! Such a rich period in US history as well. The Gods of Gotham, Seven for a Secret and The Fatal Flame are the three titles.
