A Visit From the Goon Squad These characters walk off the page into your mind if not exactly your heart. The effects of the passage of time on the characters, their values and relationships is the overarching theme in this unconventional but amazing novel.
Caleb Carr is just magnificent. This book is set in the late 1800's of New York City. Because the mentally ill were deemed aliens of society, those who worked with them were not called psychologists but rather, alienists. Amazing page turner if you're into psychological thrillers! Loved this book!
