The body of a murdered and mutilated child prostitute is found on a bridge in New York in 1896. Alienist Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, who has been asked to consult on the case by Police Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt, enlists the help of his Harvard classmate, New York Times illustrator John Moore, and then that of Commissioner Roosevelt's secretary, Sara Howard, who is also a lifelong friend of Moore's. Together with two brothers, Detective Sergeant Marcus Isaacson, Detective Sergeant Lucius Isaacson, they form a de facto special unit to investigate the murder, which Dr. Kreizler believes to be connected to the murder of two of his former child patients.
