The Alienist - Caleb Carr - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book The Alienist

Profiling a climbing killer.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Change isn't something most people enjoy, even if it's progressive change."

Questions to ponder while reading The Alienist

Do you have any issues with your mother?

What are your thoughts regarding prostitution?

My review of The Alienist

A "Sherlocky" feel.

Great fun in a book.

A mystery to the max.
