Mysteries in the Morning
The Gods of Gotham by Lyndsay Faye
New York was a teaming cesspool of crime and corruption when the first NYC police department was established. Young Timothy Wilde reluctantly joins the force after losing his employment, his savings and half his face in a fire that ravaged Manhattan. But what a copper star he becomes! Wonderful characters, impeccable research and a page-turning plot!
"With this mystery, we travel back in time to 1845 and the politically contentious beginning of the New York City Police Department. This book was recommended to me by a coworker - one look at the description and I knew I wanted to include this title in my selections for the year." - Meghan
