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…

Editorial Reviews

"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
 
"If your concept of paradise is popping in a DVD of Gangs of New York while rereading Caleb Carr's The Alienist, then put Lyndsay Faye''s The Gods of Gotham on your to-buy list."-USA Today
 
"There's enough excitement here to cause anyone's veins to quiver."-The Washington Post
 
"Riveting."-The New York Times
