In the Shadow of Gotham
Stephanie Pintoff’s In the Shadow of Gotham is NOT a Batman story.
The Usual Suspects will be discussing the book on Sunday, March 18 at 2 PM.
Having relocated to Westchester County after losing his fiancée in the 1904 General Slocum disaster, detective Simon Ziele—in a 1905 setting rich with period detail—becomes involved in the case of a brutally murdered young woman and follows the leads to a local criminologist's violent subject. Is this man behind the murder, or is someone else copying his signatures?
In the Shadow of Gotham won an Edgar for Best First Novel and was compared in several reviews to the books of Caleb Carr. In fact, Publishers Weekly said it would put readers in mind of Carr “at his best.”
