From the award-winning author of Beauty Queens (2011) comes the first in a new trilogy. Seventeen-year-old Evie O'Neill is thrilled when she is exiled from small-town Ohio to New York City in 1926. There she is under the care of her Uncle Will, the curator of a museum devoted to the occult. Evie considers this the luckiest break possible; until she realizes she's arrived just as a demon spirit has been released resulting in a spree of grisly murders. Through it all, Evie has a secret: she has the ability to read people's pasts while holding an object of their possession. She hopes her mysterious power can help catch the killer--if he doesn't catch her first.
