It's 1920s New York City. It's flappers and Follies, jazz and gin. It's after the war but before the depression. And for certain group of bright young things it's the opportunity to party like never before. For Evie O'Neill, it's escape. She's never fit in in small town Ohio and when she causes yet another scandal, she's shipped off to stay with an uncle in the big city. But far from being exile, this is exactly what she's always wanted: the chance to show how thoroughly modern and incredibly daring she can be. But New York City isn't about just jazz babies and follies girls. It has a darker side. Young women are being murdered across the city. And these aren't crimes of passion. They're gruesome. They're planned. They bear a strange resemblance to an obscure group of tarot cards. And the New York City police can't solve them alone. Evie wasn't just escaping the stifling life of Ohio, she was running from the knowledge of what she could do. She has a secret. A mysterious power that could help catch the killer - if he doesn't catch her first.

I am a BIG fan of books set in the past.  I've already read some of Libba's work (which was also historically set) and adored it.  I can't wait to see what this story has in store for me.......

  9. This sounds totally amazing! I've heard a lot about Libba Bray, but I haven't tried anything by her yet. But I'm definitely going to be adding this to my TBR! The part at the end of the summary sounds especially good.. I can't wait to read it! Great pick. =)

  10. This book sounds like one I'd love. It reminds me though, that I really should pick up some of Libba Bray's other books. That seems like a good place to start while I wait for this one!
