Product description

Review

Praise for THE GODS OF GOTHAM: 'A wonderful book. Lyndsay Faye's command of historical detail is remarkable and her knowledge of human character even more so. I bought into this world and never once had the desire to leave' (Michael Connelly)

'Executed with brio and packed with pungent historical detail...this is a cracking yarn' (Daily Mail)

'The Gods of Gotham succeeds on many levels: as a colourful, crackling evocation of an underworld packed with desperados; as an unflinching glance into the history of some of New York's shadiest and most shameful corners; and as a cleverly crafted crime story with a central character who deserves a new case, and another book' (Metro)

'The dangerous underworld of New York in the mid-nineteenth century... wonderfully vivid and vigorous' (The Sunday Times)

'This is special...The historical detail is impressive in a character-driven tale spotted with an underground language called Flash, which is fascinating. Stunning... highly recommended' (Sarah Broadhurst, 'Ones to Watch' Paperback Preview, Bookseller)

'The slums of 19th-century New York... [a] rollicking historical novel...with vibrant characters' (New York Times)
