I'm happy to hear that. But I'm not going to read the book. After starting to read "The Alienist" I've discovered that I'm more interested in the characters in the series than the story in the book.
Titled The Angel of Darkness and based on Alienist author Caleb Carr’s sequel of the same name, the follow-up will return to the original’s circa-1900 New York City setting, with main cast members Daniel Brühl, Luke Evans, and Dakota Fanning all set to return. The announcement comes on the heels of The Alienist scoring six Emmy nominations, including for Outstanding Limited Series.
