Book Giveaway!

Have you read the International bestseller, The Alienist? A novel of historical suspense fiction, it tells the story of an alienist (the 19th century term for psychologist) hunting a vicious serial killer in 1896 New York. "Fast-paced & riveting, infused with historical detail, The Alienist conjures up Gilded Age New York with its tenements & mansions, corrupt cops & flamboyant gangsters, shining opera houses & seamy gin mills."

The enthralling story was just turned into a creepy good TV series premiering in the US starring Daniel Brühl (Rush), Luke Evans (The Girl on the Train) & Dakota Fanning (American Pastoral).

Recently, I was lucky enough to see some of the gorgeous period costumes from the show lined up near copies of the book. Remembering how much I loved the novel inspired me to get the book & create another bookish giveaway!
