The first of a new series set in New York City at the turned of the century. Evie Barnum flees from her home to a safe haven with her brother PT Barnum at his American Museum of Curiosities as his assistant. An old friend from home visits her asking for her help. David refused as she read her secret would become public knowledge. The friend is found dead near her office at the museum. This starts a new adventure as Evie is determined to find out who murdered her friend and find his missing sister. A journey that will put her life in danger before it ends.
Be sure and read the author comment. The life PT Barnum has been researched. I enjoyed reading about the American Museum of Curiosities, a subject about which I know very little. Looking forward to Evie next adventure. I highly recommend this book. I
