Overview
From the author of Grim Shadows and Bitter Spirits comes the new Roaring Twenties novel in the series hailed as -Boardwalk Empire meets Ghost Hunters, but so much better- (Molly Harper, national bestselling author of the Jane Jameson series).
Feisty flapper Astrid Magnusson is home from college and yearning for the one thing that's always been off limits: Bo Yeung, her notorious bootlegging brother's second-in-command. Unfortunately her dream of an easy reunion proves difficult after a violent storm sends a mysterious yacht crashing into the Magnussons' docks. What's worse, the boat disappeared a year ago, and the survivors are acting strangely...
Bo has worked with the Magnusson family for years, doing whatever is needed, including keeping his boss's younger sister out of trouble--and his hands to himself. Of course, that isn't so easy after Astrid has a haunting vision about the yacht's disappearance, plunging them into an underground world of old money and dark magic. Danger will drive them closer together, but surviving their own forbidden feelings could be the bigger risk.

Bennett’s Roaring Twenties historical paranormal series returns to form with this solid third installment (after Grim Shadows). Astrid Magnusson, the daughter of a rich bootlegger, isn’t a promising romantic heroine: she’s spoiled, frivolous, and prone to acting out. Bo Yeung, her brother’s factotum, who’s been hopelessly in love with her for years, doesn’t have much to hang his passion on aside from admiring her legs and thinking her nonstop chatter is cute. Bennett wisely focuses on a plot that balances two problems: wrangling the troubles brought on by an ancient turquoise sculpture that gives Astrid frightening visions, and creating an arrangement that will permit Astrid, a wealthy white woman, to freely love Bo, a working-class Chinese man, in 1920s San Francisco. Given that Chinese are barred from most white-owned establishments and miscegenation is legally prohibited, the latter conundrum is the more formidable, but the sculpture brings with it a knife-wielding pursuer who’s impossible to ignore. Steady, thoughtful Bo, with touches of the poet and the thug, is the star, steering this mismatched but charming pair through their rocky shoals, and the time spent in his head makes this a worthwhile read. Agent: Laura Bradford, Bradford Literary Agency. (May)
