One terrific book arrived at my house this week:
As part of BOOK CLUB, I received an Advance Readers Edition of the recently released The Gods of Gotham by Lyndsay Faye (Amy Einhorn Books, March 2012). Set in NYC in 1845, this novel brings together the newly minted NYC police force and the great potato famine in Ireland. Timothy Wilde is disfigured, unemployed, and homeless when his older brother obtains him a job in the NYPD. Timothy works in the down-and-out Sixth Ward-at the border of Five Points, the world’s most notorious slum. One night while making his rounds, he finds a little girl, not more than ten years old, running through the dark in her nightshift . . . covered head to toe in blood. What unfolds is a mystery involving bodies buried in the forest north of 23rd Street, and a battle for justice which will change Timothy’s life forever.
Check out the book trailer:
This book will be discussed over on Jen’s blog on April 3rd. I hope you’ll join us there!
