In 1840s New York City, Timothy Wilde's life is marked by tragedy, and it's about to get even more dangerous and complicated as he endeavors to solve a mystery and save children's lives. I'm not great at gauging what bits are spoilers, so I'll just say that I really enjoyed this one. There's one big red herring and some of the attitudes seem anachronistic, but the dialogue and dialect are skillfully done and the story compelling.

While I was aware of anti-Catholic and anti-Irish bias and violence in the US, the extent of it as evidenced by the excerpts from historical writings at the head of each chapter was a surprise to me. It's valuable to remember that the US has always had difficulty defining exactly who "us" is and that the divisiveness of today, while disheartening, is nothing new, and we need always to be on guard against the less noble parts of our own human nature.

This one was okay -- it didn't thrill me like Faye's most recent novel, [b:The Paragon Hotel|37970853|The Paragon Hotel|Lyndsay Faye|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1522566322s/37970853.jpg|59694776]. For my money, Caleb Carr's [b:The Alienist|40024|The Alienist (Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, #1)|Caleb Carr|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1388256626s/40024.jpg|2266643] (which I read ages ago, but didn't rate -- or even shelve until recently, for that matter) is a much better historical crime fiction set in New York ~the same time.

This is quite a book. The setting, New York in the mid 1800s, is presented brilliantly. The story is very gritty and raw. Even though it made reading more work, I really liked the way the author made the characters vand dialog very authentic. ( )

New York City of 1845 is a cacophany of competing lexicons. In The Gods of Gotham by Lyndsay Faye, the city’s political bosses, religious leaders, starving Irish immigrants, impoverished nativists, civil leaders, race-baiters, headline writers, popular novelists, street hawkers, sinners, lovers, and criminals each employ language as distinctive as a police report’s. But also whispering among the leaning hovels of babble in Five Points are secret loyalties, monstrous acts, and madness.
...
Amid many intersecting factions, venues, and intents, the novel retains a glorious and tragic coherence. Without being epigraphic, The Gods of Gotham is a feast of language, 1845’s New York City as a magnificent assembly of newspaper articles, poems, sensational novels, crime reports, advertisements, amateur theatrics, hawkers’ calls, political promises, and flash conversations, making those tender and awful things that can’t be said even more keenly felt.

When I set down the initial report, sitting at my desk at the Tombs, I wrote:
On the night of August 21, 1845, one of the children escaped.
The history of New York's Five Points is rife with legend, speculation, and controversy, but I have done my best to present its condition accurately. (Historical Afterword)
