I loved The Alienist and thus was a fan of Caleb Carr. This is a contemporary novel set in upstate New York in a sleepy little historical town called Surrender.

As always, Carr’s characters are fascinating and they have such compelling storylines that they keep you invested in their future survival. Combine that with an intriguing plot and you’re off. Be aware Carr is a detail oriented writer so along the way, you will learn tidbits like what trees grow best along Route 22 (the better to hide bodies!). Hang in there; the story and details are worth the ride!”
