************************

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

Forensics and psychological profiling are still in their infancy, but as the body count rises, Police Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt calls on eminent psychologist or ‘alienist’, Dr Laszlo Kreizler and crime reporter John Schuyler Moore to trial these new methods.

Kreizler, Moore and their team must venture to the darkest corners of New York – and the human mind – to catch the sadistic killer before they strike again.
