Overview

New York City, 1926. I vetri dei grattacieli risplendono dei bagliori di mille festeanimate da balli sfrenati a ritmo di charlestone dal tintinnio delle perle sui vestiti luccicanti. L’alcol scorre a fiumi nonostante i divieti e, a giudicare dall’effervescenza di Manhattan,il mondo sembra destinato a un futuro radioso. È qui che in seguito all’ennesima eccentricità viene spedita dai genitori l’irriverente Evie O’Neill, una ragazza dell’Ohio che non aspetta altro che tuffarsi tra le infinite possibilità offerte dalla metropoli. A ospitarla è lo zio Will, un professore, parente dei Fitzgerald, che dirige il Museo Americano del Folklore, delle Superstizioni e dell’Occulto, detto anche Museo del Brivido: un luogo magico dal fascino decadente,che custodisce nelle sue teche e tra i suoi bui corridoi le tracce del retroterra misterioso dell’America. Ma quando lo sfolgorio della città viene oscurato da una serie di delitti a sfondo esoterico, New York precipita in un vortice di paura ed Evie, che da subito assiste lo zio nella consulenza alla polizia, è chiamata a collaborare alle indagini, anche per quel suo dono di vedere il passato delle persone toccando un oggetto a loro appartenuto. Muovendosi tra fumosi jazz club e bassifondi urbani, scintillanti negozi e sale spettrali, la ragazza s’inoltrerà insieme a molti compagni di strada in un gorgo di eventi evocato dal passato, e che nel passato dovrà essere ricacciato, pena il sopravvento di un antico male oscuro.
