Surrender, New York – Cover Released

Surrender, New YorkEarlier this week, the finalised cover for Caleb Carr’s upcoming novel, Surrender, New York, was released by Random House — and I, for one, love it! To view the cover in full size, click the image to the right.

Atmospheric and reminiscent of The Alienist’s original cover, it seems like a perfect fit for a contemporary thriller whose protagonist, Dr. Trajan Jones, is described in the novel’s synposis as, “the world’s leading expert on the life and work of one Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, the hero of The Alienist, in whose brilliant but unconventional footsteps he follows.” On the novel’s page at Amazon, Caleb Carr also noted, “This book is essentially a modern application of the principles and theories of Dr. Laszlo Kreizler to criminal behavior, especially that directed at children.” To read the full synopsis, please visit the new Surrender, New York page in the ‘Other Books’ section of 17th Street.

This should be an exciting addition to Mr. Carr’s oeuvre for readers who enjoyed the Alienist books, and it is due for release by Random House on August 23, 2016. If you would like to pre-order, you can do so at Amazon or via one of the other retailers listed on the Penguin Random House website.

    • I’m keen as well! The fact that it’s set in contemporary NY, but has links back to the two Alienist novels intrigues me; I’ve never seen a novelist do this before, so I’m looking forward to seeing how it’s been accomplished.

  1. The cover looks great, the colors match your site, and I look forward to reading it in August.
    I hope The Alienist script is going to be modified to represent the book – I’ll keep my eye on the site for updates.

    • Ha! Yes, the colours are similar! And do keep checking back regarding the TV series. While the focus of this site has always been (and will always be) the books, I’ll certainly be keeping my eye out for news regarding the TV series, particularly as it pertains to the loyalty of the adaptation.

    • I can see a lot of the same elements in both. Speaking as someone who isn’t familiar with the area where the book appears to be predominantly set (upstate NY), I love the emphasis on lonely roads/paths and trees/forests in both; either one certainly evokes a suspenseful atmosphere for a thriller.
