Nueva York, 1896. John Schuyler Moore, reportero de sucesos de The New York Times, recibe en plena madrugada la llamada de su antiguo compa#65533;ero de Harvard, el famoso alienista (como se conoc#65533;a entonces a los psic#65533;logos) Laszlo Kreizler, quien le cita en el puente de Williamsburg, escenario de un horrible asesinato.

Theodore Roosevelt, jefe de polic#65533;a de la ciudad, solicita la colaboraci#65533;n de ambos amigos para indagar el crimen, una atrevida iniciativa, pues el alienista es visto con desconfianza por una sociedad conservadora, que considera que un asesino nace y no se hace.

Mientras que el grupo intenta trazar el perfil psicol#65533;gico de un asesino del que lo ignora todo, este parece conocerlos perfectamente....

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * SOON TO BE A TNT ORIGINAL SERIES

When The Alienist was first published in 1994, it was a major phenomenon, spending six months on the New York Times bestseller list, receiving critical acclaim, and selling millions of copies. This modern classic continues to be a touchstone of historical suspense fiction for readers everywhere.

The year is 1896. The city is New York. Newspaper reporter John Schuyler Moore is summoned by his friend Dr. Laszlo Kreizler--a psychologist, or "alienist"--to view the horribly mutilated body of an adolescent boy abandoned on the unfinished Williamsburg Bridge. From there the two embark on a revolutionary effort in criminology: creating a psychological profile of the perpetrator based on the details of his crimes. Their dangerous quest takes them into the tortured past and twisted mind of a murderer who will kill again before their hunt is over.

Fast-paced and riveting, infused with historical detail, The Alienist conjures up Gilded Age New York, with its tenements and mansions, corrupt cops and flamboyant gangsters, shining opera houses and seamy gin mills. It is an age in which questioning society's belief that all killers are born, not made, could have unexpected and fatal consequences.
