"This supernatural noir thriller is serving up the very best the genre has to offer: unsavory characters, dark humor, sordid secrets, and an intrepid femme fatale anti-heroine who charms as a red-headed, murderous flapper version of Legally Blonde's Elle Woods. . . . The historical world-building is immersive, with the slang-filled narration and dialogue being a highlight. . . . The gripping plot escalates with the thrills, culminating in a violent whirlwind of a happy ending."-The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, Starred Review

"An effervescent champagne cocktail of a novel that packs a delightful punch."-Booklist

"Noir turned merrily upside down."-Kirkus Reviews

"An interesting blend of historical fiction, crime drama, and fantasy, steeped in danger and scheming."-School Library Journal

"Kulper (the Salt & Storm series) delivers a glitzy, adrenaline-fueled crime novel brimming with formidable women."-Publishers Weekly

"An engaging, page-turning mystery that crackles with the wit and shimmering style of the 1920s. Shiny and dark, funny and grim, and populated by lovable, charming characters that leap off the page, grab you by the hand, and lead you onto the dance floor. The most fun book about murder you'll ever read." -Mackenzi Lee, New York Times bestselling author of The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue

"Kendall Kulper's whip-smart romp through 1920s Chicago has it all-mystery, romance, a killer wardrobe, and a vibrant cast headlined by the indomitable, irresistible Ruby Newhouse. A deliciously dazzling page-turner you'll devour in one sitting." -Claire Legrand, New York Times bestselling author of Furyborn

"A devilishly plotted page-turner that sparkles with wit and romance. Murder and mayhem have never been so fun!" -Lisa Maxwell, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Magician
