It’s 1926, and one Evie O’Neal is hiding a secret: She can learn details of a person’s life by touching an object belonging to them. This “party trick,” as most see it, lands in her a spot of trouble, so she’s shipped off to New York City to live with her uncle Will, who is a professor and owner of The Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult. Just after Evie arrives in New York, a murder occurs in the city, and soon she, Will, and others find themselves drawn into a paranormal murder investigation.
