A mini-series based on Caleb Carr's novel ( ) is airing now - very much the dark-and-brooding tone so far, which suits the story but makes it frustratingly hard for me to figure out what's happening on screen {wry grin}. It's set in 1896 New York, and features Theodore Roosevelt as a police commissioner.

I received the book for Christmas so I’m trying to get to the book before I start the series.


I'm enjoying the series, but I'm finding that I have to really concentrate to follow the story. I am interested enough to read the book.


I think it is the best of Carr's books. I haven't watched the series, but plan to. Right now I am almost too busy to watch TV. For this reason, I am not getting into any series.
