Críticas:

"Intriguingly complex yet deliciously smooth, "The Gods of Gotham" is, in a word, stunning. The vivid characters and deft use of the historical setting read like the work of an established writer at the top of her (or indeed, his) career--that Faye is a newcomer is cause for an exuberance of fireworks, at the mere thought of so many superb novels yet to come." --Laurie R. King, "New York Times"-bestselling author of "The God of the Hive" and "The Beekeeper's Apprentice"

"Lyndsay Faye is a superstar-caliber writer. She confidently and exquisitely re-creates the past while her characters live on with you in the present, the elusive gold standard for a historical novel. "The Gods of Gotham" is a gift to the genre that readers will surely relish while we wait for Faye's next one." --Matthew Pearl, bestselling author of "The Dante Club"

""The Gods of Gotham" is a revelation. Lyndsay Faye puts the drive and passion of a modern thriller onto the mean streets of 1840s New York. She brings a fascinating page of history to life with a gripping, twisty plot, vivid characters, and seamless research. This is historical fiction at its best." --Daniel Stashower, two-time Edgar-winning author of "Teller of Tales" and "The Beautiful Cigar Girl"

"Lyndsay Faye's exquisite new novel, "The Gods of Gotham", plunges us into the teeming, sordid streets of old New York. But this is no Whartonian idyll--Faye's Manhattan is a raucous underworld of criminals and chiselers, the infamous Five Points, where thieves speak their own argot, the sanitation department consists of free-running pigs, and Tammany-backed 'dead rabbits' rule with an iron fist. In this vivid and impeccably crafted adventure, newly minted 'copper star' Timothy Wilde is the only man who can solve a series of gruesome murders plaguing Gotham. Faye's prose crackles with historical authenticity so cunningly rendered that readers will lose themselves from the very first turn of the page." --Katherine Howe, bestselling author of "The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane"

""The Gods of Gotham" is an enthralling novel that immediately pulls readers into its twisting tale of murder, conspiracy, and socio-religious turmoil. With an engaging narrator, smart rendering of time and place, and gripping suspense, this superb story is virtually impossible to put down." --Stefanie Pintoff, Edgar-winning author of "In the Shadow of Gotham"

"Penetrating psychological study, flawless social history, beautifully crafted thriller . . . "The Gods of Gotham" is all these things, and a crackling great yarn to boot. Old New York has never been so blazingly alive. Lyndsay Faye is a writer to watch--and keep watching." --Louis Bayard, author of "The School of Night"

""The Gods of Gotham" blew me away. Unflinching and bold, creative and dazzling, cinematic: nineteenth-century New York is alive." --Laura Caldwell, author of "Long Way Home "and "Claim of Innocence"

"Reading "The Gods of Gotham "is like being magically transported to another time. You'll be overwhelmed with the sights, sounds, smells, and chaos of New York in the 1840s, while never losing sight of the fact that this is a first-rate crime novel for any era. I can't wait to see what Lyndsay Faye will conjure next." --Otto Penzler, The Mysterious Bookshop

"Lyndsay Faye makes it look easy to write a great historical mystery: First, research the hell out of a remote time period, painstakingly paint a picture of that alien world (in this case, mid-nineteenth-century New York), and then craft a story so compelling that the reader forgets that it's alien! Her masterful "Dust and Shadow" reinvigorated Sherlock Holmes versus Jack the Ripper, but this wholly different tale confirms a talent far beyond her (damn her) thirty-year-old age." --Leslie S. Klinger, author of "The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes"

"With crisp prose, memorable characters, and an impressive respect for its historic setting, "The Gods of Gotham" pulls you into old New York's days of the Five Points. Lyndsay Faye is a writer to watch." --Alafair Burke, author of "Long Gone"

""The Gods of Gotham" is a wonderful book. Lyndsay Faye's command of historical detail is remarkable, and her knowlege of human character even more so. I bought into this world in the opening pages and never once had the desire to leave. It's a great read!"--Michael Connelly
"The launch of a brilliant new mystery series, set in 1845 New York City: Irish Potato Famine, the birth of the police force, brothels and bedlam."-- Gillian Flynn
"It's been almost twenty years since Caleb Carr's bestselling Olde New York crime novel, "The Alienist," was published, and I cant count the number of times since then that someone has asked me if I can recommend a suspense story anything 'like it.' Well, New York has inspired lots of terrific thrillers, but I've just stumbled on one of the worthiest successors yet. Lyndsay Faye's novel, "The Gods of Gotham.""--Maureen Corrigan, NPR's "Fresh Air"

1845: New York City forms its first police force. The great potato famine hits Ireland.
These two events will change New York City forever

Timothy Wilde tends bar, saving every dollar in hopes of winning the girl of his dreams. But when his dreams are destroyed by a fire that devastates downtown Manhattan, he is left with little choice but to accept a job in the newly minted New York City Police Department.

Returning exhausted from his rounds one night, Tim collides with a girl no more than ten years old covered in blood. She claims that dozens of bodies are buried in the forest north of Twenty-Third Street. Timothy isn t sure whether to believe her, but as the image of a brutal killer is slowly revealed and anti-Irish rage infects the city, the reluctant copper star is engaged in a battle that may cost him everything
