Are you a crime genre fan? Love a little suspense, mystery, murrrrrrderrrrrrr? Ditto, babe. A few years ago, a friend suggested that I read Caleb Carr's 1994 novel "The Alienist." It takes place in 1896 New York and follows Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a psychologist (or "alienist," as they were known then). Dr. Kreizler is working with NYC police commissioner Theodore Roosevelt (yep, THAT Theodore Roosevelt!) to try and solve grisly murders that are happening throughout the city. It's a lot like the Netflix show "Mindhunter," because they're using "new" methods of investigation like fingerprinting and psychology. The book is so good that it's been turned into a show starring Dakota Fanning and Daniel Brühl. So before the show premieres on TNT on the 22nd, read the book it's based on! Find it at your local bookstore or at Barnes & Noble and Amazon!
