The Gods of Gotham by Lyndsay Faye

The-Gods-of-Gotham-cover.jpgThe Gods of Gotham takes us to New York City in 1845; a place rife with political tension, an influx of immigrants, and the newly formed New York City police force. After the second fateful fire of his life, Timothy Wilde reluctantly becomes a police officer or "copper-star," and is assigned to the Sixth Ward, a neighborhood comprised of the city's ill-treated Irish population.

On his first patrol Wilde collides with a young girl drenched in blood. What follows is a grizzly discovery that threatens to throw the city into turmoil. Who is the madman responsible for the most heinous crimes the city has seen? The truth Wilde unravels will change the face of the city.
