New York's Finest in their first few years.,
This review is from: The Gods of Gotham (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)The Gods of Gotham is an interesting recreation of 1850 New York and the formation of a police force to patrol the means streets.
Set amongst and focusing on the problems of the Irish flooding over to escape from the potato famine, it tells of a time when a serial killer stalks the streets murdering children.
This is not what it seems....
The story is told through the eyes of Timothy Wilde and his relationship with his older and better connected brother.
The plot twists and turns, and keeps the pages turning. It has shortcomings but really it's the recreation of the mid century streets of NY that is the most fascinating aspect.
