„After mimicking Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, (Lyndsay) Faye was better prepared to tackle her second book, The Gods of Gotham. It takes place in New York City in 1845 and introduces Timothy Wilde, a fire-scarred and love-starved ex-bartender who—thanks to the intervention (or meddling, as her first sees it) of his politically connected elder brother, Valentine—joins the then-new New York Police Department.“
