Mr Brands fills in the big picture of the post-Civil War, Boss Tweed and Railroad Era New York in style. Brands manages to write in the lilting language of the time without losing the reader. If you are initially turned off by it, give it a few extra pages. You'll get used to it and may find that it gives this fast read an authentic feel. And the next time you're in Gotham, you may want to look up a few addresses.

If the writer had given more background on Stokes personality or Josie's charms, maybe the reader could understand how a seemingly normal guy could go off the rails so fast. I don't think historical scandals are Brands forte.
