It is June 1897. A year has passed since Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a pioneer in forensic psychiatry, tracked down the brutal serial killer John Beecham with the help of a team of trusted companions and a revolutionary application of the principles of his discipline. Kreizler and his friends–high-living crime reporter John Schuyler Moore; indomitable, derringer-toting Sara Howard; the brilliant (and bickering) detective brothers Marcus and Lucius Isaacson; powerful and compassionate Cyrus Montrose; and Stevie Taggert, the boy Kreizler saved from a life of street crime–have returned to their former pursuits and tried to forget the horror of the Beecham case. But when the distraught wife of a Spanish diplomat begs Sara’s aid, the team reunites to help find her kidnapped infant daughter. It is a case fraught with danger since Spain and the United States are on the verge of war.

My Thoughts
The Alienist is an exciting series that follow that very first criminal minds team as they chase a serial killers through the streets of New York. A female detective named Sara teams  up with a doctor and an alienist to analyze the bodies and crime scenes to figure out not only who the killer is, but how they think and what drives them to murder.

I loved everything about series. It’s a mystery, a historical series, and a phycological thriller all rolled into one. I especially loved Dakota Fanning playing the rebellious Sara who removed to except a women’s role in Victorian New York and instead made her own future. I’m excited to see what happens in the next season. If you want to grab a copy of this amazing DVD for yourself, you can find it in stores nationwide on online at Amazon.
