The Alienist is set in the late nineteenth century in new York city and revolves around the search for a serial killer with new methods such as fingerprints and psychology. The first murder victim is a 13-year-old immigrant who has been stripped of his eyes, mutilated his genitals and caused other unpleasant injuries. The researchers treat various interest groups who want to mantenerel the status quo with respect to the poor immigrant population in new York. It includes appearances by many famous people of the time in the metropolis like Theodore Roosevelt and JP Morgan.
