One of The Wall Street Journal’s Ten Best Mysteries of the Year
“Amazing...This is a series for the ages, it’s so spectacular.”—Gillian Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl


1846: In New York City, slave catching isn’t just legal—it’s law enforcement.

Six months after the formation of the NYPD, its most reluctant and talented officer, Timothy Wilde, 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.

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 where corpses appear in the most shocking of places…

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome series! When I heard this was only going to be a trilogy I was very disappointed. The characters are memorable, the setting intriguing, and the mysteries compelling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book is highly recommended! I bought this book a month ago and couldn't wait to start reading. It did not disappoint. It is a taut, suspenseful story with a myriad of plot twists that keeps you guessing right to the very end. The author does an excellent job of recreating a time long-vanished, when new York City was young and raw and the city police service was even rawer. The protagonist, Timothy Wilde, is a bright, articulate and complex copper, an intensely likable man on many levels. I cannot wait for the next installment of his story.
