Summary:

From Edgar-nominated author Lyndsay Faye comes what Gillian Flynn calls “a brilliant new mystery.”

One of The Wall Street Journal’s Ten Best Mysteries of the Year

Six months after the formation of the NYPD, its most reluctant and talented officer, Timothy Wilde, thinks himself well versed in his city’s dark practices—until he learns of the gruesome underworld of lies and corruption ruled by the “blackbirders,” who snatch free Northerners of color from their homes, masquerade them as slaves, and sell them south to toil as plantation property.

The abolitionist Timothy is horrified by these traders in human flesh. But in 1846, slave catching isn’t just legal—it’s law enforcement.

When the beautiful and terrified Lucy Adams staggers into Timothy’s office to report a robbery and is asked what was stolen, her reply is, “My family.” Their search for her mixed-race sister and son will plunge Timothy and his feral brother, Valentine, into a world where police are complicit and politics savage, and corpses appear in the most shocking of places. Timothy finds himself caught between power and principles, desperate to protect his only brother and to unravel the puzzle before all he cares for is lost.

    I cannot say enough about Lyndsay Faye. I stumbled upon The Paragon Hotel and have since devoured three of her books in succession. I am on to my fourth Lyndsay Faye audiobook, "Jane Steele" which I highly recommend as well. If you haven't already read The Gods of Gotham, start there as this could possibly be read as a stand-alone book but is much more relevant as a sequel. Steven Boyer is a marvelous narrator and I was so very disappointed when I listened to the sample of the next book, The Fatal Flame, and it was narrated by a robotic and hard to follow voice so I will probably be reading that one hard copy as I am interested in further development of the characters. Lyndsay Faye keeps the characters and story intimate and engaging even while covering some uncomfortable subject matter. I recommend any of her books and probably anything narrated by Steven Boyer.
