Trouble is brewing, you can feel it on the wind! Speaking of trouble, seventeen-year-old spitfire Evie O'Neill proves to be too much for small-town Ohio - after a mysterious, scandalous incident Evie's parents send her to live in New York City (how could life in Manhattan in the Roaring Twenties be a punishment?) with her uncle Will. He runs The Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult--also known as "The Museum of the Creepy Crawlies." Evie soon finds herself helping her uncle try to catch a serial killer, but in her quest to bring media attention to the museum (and, of course, herself) seems destined to fall into the crosshairs of some powerful forces. The stories of many other characters and themes of the age wind through this dense and intense introduction to the Diviners series.
