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.
