James Lincoln Collier likes to paint 'em dark: In earlier books, he portrayed Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington in less than flattering terms, to the distress of their friends and admirers. Clarinetist Benny Goodman was more widely acknowledged as a prickly fellow, so Collier would seem to be on steadier ground for this round. As usual, however, he indulges in slapdash, at times parodistic psychoanalysis: "Benny does not seem to have been very close to his mother."

Caleb Carr is, among other things, a historian and biographer capable of writing a monograph that reads like an adventure story. And so it's no surprise that his latest book, "The Alienist," is a novel that makes good use of history in telling the tale of a 19th-Century serial killer.
