Angel of Darkness by Caleb Carr
.  On the eve of the Spanish-American war with tensions between the two countries at their peak, the daughter of a Spanish diplomat is kidnapped in Central Park while on an outing with her mother. Upon being presented with the case at her newly opened private investigation firm, former police secretary Miss Sara Howard is aware of the potentially volatile political implications of the case and enlists the help of her former colleagues in the sensitive investigation.  In the days that follow, the investigative team, led one again by eminent psychologist Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, discover that the heart of this case lies far from politics and instead rests with a mysterious woman whose dark past draws them away from Manhattan to the small town of Ballston Spa in upstate New York. With legendary attorney Clarence Darrow cast to defend the suspect’s case, The Angel of Darkness is part mystery, part courtroom drama, and part psychological thriller–and pits the team against their most frightening and cunning adversary yet..  Registration required.  Open to All.
