Beverly Swerling’s epic saga continues as New York emerges from the Civil War into the Gilded Age—a city marked by soaring expansion and teeming with unbridled ambition and dazzling glamour. Joshua Turner returns home from the war with only one leg yet determined to make his fortune. He aspires to build the city’s first apartment houses for Everyman, a daring vision that will make him the city’s first real estate titan but attracts the attention of a shadowy figure from his past. Mollie Brannigan, raised by her Auntie Eileen in the toniest bordello in town, is resigned at age twenty-two to spinsterhood. Then Joshua finds her at Macy’s, the city’s largest emporium, and takes her coaching in Central Park. In his love Mollie finds a world of possibilities, but a secret Eileen thought left behind in Ireland will force Mollie to employ all her wits to protect not just her chance at happiness but her life. Vividly imagined and awash in period detail, City of Promise delivers not only suspense and intrigue, daring plot twists and bitter rivalries, but also the captivating love story of two people struggling to forge their own destiny.

It was the biggest funeral Chicago had seen since Lincoln’s. On May 26, 1889, four thousand mourners proceeded down Michigan Avenue, followed by a crowd forty thousand strong, in a howl of protest at what commentators called one of the ghastliest and most curious crimes in civilized history. The dead man, Dr. P. H. Cronin, was a respected Irish physician, but his brutal murder uncovered a web of intrigue, secrecy, and corruption that stretched across the United States and far beyond. Blood Runs Green tells the story of Cronin’s murder from the police investigation to the trial. It is a story of hotheaded journalists in pursuit of sensational crimes, of a bungling police force riddled with informers and spies, and of a secret revolutionary society determined to free Ireland but succeeding only in tearing itself apart. It is also the story of a booming immigrant population clamoring for power at a time of unprecedented change. From backrooms to courtrooms, historian Gillian O’Brien deftly navigates the complexities of Irish Chicago, bringing to life a rich cast of characters and tracing the spectacular rise and fall of the secret Irish American society Clan na Gael. She draws on real-life accounts and sources from the United States, Ireland, and Britain to cast new light on Clan na Gael and reveal how Irish republicanism swept across the United States. Destined to be a true crime classic, Blood Runs Green is an enthralling tale of a murder that captivated the world and reverberated through society long after the coffin closed.

«Wie ein neu entdeckter Roman von Henry Fielding mit Bonusmaterial von Martin Scorsese.» (The Times) 1746 in einer kleinen englischen Kolonialstadt an der Spitze der Insel Manhattan: Neu-York wirkt auch Jahrzehnte nach der Eroberung durch die Briten immer noch recht holländisch; die alteingesessenen Familien reden Englisch mit Akzent, am Hafen weht der Union Jack über schmalen Fachwerkhäusern, am anderen Ende der Stadt ist der Broad Way (vorher Breede Weg) auf Höhe der Wall Street durch ein Tor versperrt. Draußen hängen Skalps: Verbündete Indianerstämme haben sie französischen Soldaten abgenommen. Eines Tages steigt ein Brite namens Smith im Regen von einem aus London kommenden Segler. Der junge Mann scheint über Geld zu verfügen, er trägt den Wechsel einer Londoner Bank mit sich. Schnell findet er Zugang zur Gesellschaft, wird er zu einer Berühmtheit in der Stadt. Leider auch bei den Falschen: Smith wird überfallen und ausgeraubt. Niemand darf von der prekären neuen Lage erfahren, das Schuldgefängnis droht. Und dann kommt Smiths Affäre mit der Frau eines hohen Offiziers ans Licht. Ein Duell ist unumgänglich, und ausgerechnet sein bester Freund fordert ihn, ein exzellenter Fechter. Doch dann nimmt das Schicksal unseres Helden eine weitere überraschende Wendung – es wird nicht die letzte sein in diesem phantastischen, geistreichen, spannenden Wunderwerk von einem Roman.
