Publisher Comments:

SOMETHING DARK AND EVIL HAS AWAKENED. . . .

Evie O’Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City—and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It’s 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.

Evie worries her uncle will discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.

As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho is hiding a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened. . . .

Includes an Introduction Read by Libba Bray

Review:

"After committing a small indiscretion, Evie O'Neill couldn't be happier when her parents exile her from small-town Ohio to live with her uncle in 1920s New York City. A life of fashion, speakeasies, dancing, and music is exactly what 17-year-old Evie wants. But when her Uncle Will, who manages a museum of occult history and artifacts, is drawn into a police investigation of a bizarre and gruesome series of murders, Evie finds herself involved as well — and this means she may be forced to reveal her supernatural powers. Narrator January LaVoy provides lively, magnetic narration and gives unique voices to the book's cast of fascinating characters. Listeners both young and old will enjoy this supernatural story and find this audio edition enthralling, irresistible entertainment. Ages 15 — up. A Little Brown hardcover. (Sept.)"
