Summary, etc.: A young detective who specializes in "tiny mysteries" finds herself at the center of a massive conspiracy in this beguiling historical fantasy set on Manhattan's Westside--a peculiar and dangerous neighborhood home to strange magic and stranger residents.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 May #1
    *Starred Review* A fence divides Manhattan into the prosperous Eastside and the dangerous Westside. Westside has always been the place where strange, almost supernatural occurrences happen. When people start to disappear, residents worry, but the authorities do nothing. Longtime Westside resident Gilda Carr specializes in "tiny mysteries." When she is approached by society lady Edith Copeland to find the match to the glove she lost, Gilda takes the case. Little does she know that this tiny mystery will lead her to the discovery of a shadowy underworld, multiple attempts on her life, and the possible answer to her father's disappearance. Akers has created a believable alternate–1920s New York City, full of bootleggers, jazz babies, and corrupt cops as well as some potentially supernatural creatures. The villains are larger than life but believably human in their greed and selfishness. Like the best reluctant heroes, Gilda is as quick with a quip as she is with her trigger finger. Full of action and colorful characters, this genre mash-up is expertly done and will be enjoyed by fans of mysteries and fantasy alike. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
