How does Libba Bray get better with every book she writes? This is the first in a series and with the huge canvas and the big cast of characters she has chosen, it will take a while to tell the story. The roaring twenties really come to life, even to the smells. As I read it, my grandmother's flapper high school portrait kept popping up in my mind. The palpable sense of evil keeps the reader on the edge of her seat as the suspense keeps growing. Not to be missed.
