Description

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

1920s New York. A teen clairvoyant. An old evil. It has begun.

Evie O'Neill has been exiled from her boring old home town and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City - and she is pos-i-tute-ly thrilled! New York is the city of speak-easies, rent parties, shopping and movie palaces, and soon enough Evie is running with glamorous Ziegfeld girls and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that Evie has to live with her Uncle Will, curator of the Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult - also known as 'The Museum of the Creepy Crawlies'.

When a rash of occult-based murders comes to light, Evie and her uncle are right in the thick of it. Even Evie's new pals - hoofers, numbers runners and activists, but all swell kids - are drawn into the investigation. And through it all, Evie has a secret: a mysterious power that could help catch the killer - if he doesn't catch her first.

'A fascinating alternative 1926 where men aren't all they seem - and are possibly much more. Evie is sassy, feisty, and full of beans.Very Mary Shelley after a long night on the laudanum. Gripping - I could not stop.' KERRY GREENWOOD
