Where, oh where has Caleb Carr been? After triumphs that began with the 1994 bestseller The Alienist, he stopped publishing fiction after The Italian Secretary of 2005. Like its predecessors, The Legend of Broken combines Carr's consummate storytelling powers with his willingness to defy easy expectations. Set in the fortress of Broken in medieval Germany, the fiction pits the kingdom's brave defenders, attackers, and those with their own agendas against one another. Exhilarating and multilayered, the novel exhibits the author's talent at presenting full-bodied characters in unfamiliar historical settings. A talented writer back on the map; editor's recommendation.
