About 31 Bond Street
In the vein of The Alienist, 31 Bond Street transports readers back to New York City of the 19th century with an unending series of suspenseful twists and turns.
When the brutally stabbed and nearly decapitated body of a society dentist is found in his townhouse in lower Manhattan, the identity of the killer becomes a question that consumes national interest in the days preceding the Civil War.
Set against the background of a bustling and corrupt New York City in 1857, 31 Bond Street is a fascinating archeological dig, taking the reader through the minutiae of a buried past, only to uncover circumstances that are shockingly contemporary; a sensationalist press, burgeoning new wealth, a booming real estate market, and race and gender conflicts. The novel vividly exposes a small slice of lost history as it explores New York City on the eve of the Civil War.
