|buchery on bond street
||Ben Feldman vividly recreates New York City in the 1850s as the setting for a brutal and bloody murder which still has the power to shock. His meticulous historical research goes beyond the headlines of the day and brings to life a memorable cast of characters with their ambitions and desperations laid bare. A widow with overwhelming emotional and financial needs, a dentist with a successful practice and a shady private life: these and others lived and died in a Bond Street townhouse on a block that looks much the same today as it did 150 years ago. Feldman navigates the gender politics of the case and offers expert guidance on the legal complexities of murder and money. It’s a splendid and gripping read.
