Bargain do Dia ~ The Diviners
Por norma posto livros com preço abaixo dos €5 nesta rubrica, por isso hoje vai parecer muito estranho publicar sobre um livro ligeiramente acima desse valor, mas honestamente isto é uma bargain, minha gente! Quer dizer, são quase 600 páginas. Já para não falar que este livro é fabuloso, e costuma estar a um preço puxado—para um paperback. Por isso aqui fica, o primeiro livro da nova série de Libba Bray, The Diviners, um dos meus favoritos do ano passado.
It’s 1920s New York City. It’s flappers and Follies, jazz and gin. It’s after the war but before the depression. And for certain group of bright young things it’s the opportunity to party like never before. For Evie O’Neill, it’s escape. She’s never fit in in small town Ohio and when she causes yet another scandal, she’s shipped off to stay with an uncle in the big city. But far from being exile, this is exactly what she’s always wanted: the chance to show how thoroughly modern and incredibly daring she can be. But New York City isn’t about just jazz babies and follies girls. It has a darker side. Young women are being murdered across the city. And these aren’t crimes of passion. They’re gruesome. They’re planned. They bear a strange resemblance to an obscure group of tarot cards. And the New York City police can’t solve them alone. Evie wasn’t just escaping the stifling life of Ohio, she was running from the knowledge of what she could do. She has a secret. A mysterious power that could help catch the killer—if he doesn’t catch her first.
