The Bactra Review The
Alienist and Blood Tracks
Carr makes various members of the Powers That Be --- including no less a
plutocrat than J. P. Morgan --- find the alienist's ideas about child abuse
more threatening than unions; even makes this a hinge of the plot. I realize
I'm picky about labor issues, but really, men like Morgan never hired
mercenaries by the gross to shoot shrinks and social workers.
