    Summary

    A speakeasy, also called a blind pig or blind tiger, is an illicit establishment that sells alcoholic beverages. Such establishments came into prominence in the United States during the Prohibition era (1920–1933, longer in some states). Due to the nature of one of the NYPD's biggest cases in the steam powered year of 1925, detective Lena Oxton thought it more appropriate to call any speakeasy that popped up around the city a blind spider, instead.

    After all, under the alias of Widowmaker, someone has opened over 57 speakeasy's all over New York in less than a year...And demolished all evidence of them the very night they hit the scene.

    Summary

    New York in the summer of 2016 is muggy and gross; New York in the summer of 1923 is the same and the air conditioning is definitely lacking.

    “I am not wearing that,” Len says flatly, eyeing the outfit Gideon has produced. “The suit, yes, the underwear, no.”

    Summary

    Everything changed by 1920.

    War was no longer romantic, booze was no longer legal, and horses... horses didn't hold the same sort of usefulness as a locomotive or a Model T. Modernism had rendered entire lifestyles impotent.

    But Alex Danvers knew horses. Knew them well enough to carve a life out tending to them. So the call to the Steel Pier in Atlantic City doesn't exactly take her by surprise. But the flying horses, and the star that rides them?

    Well... Alex Danvers never planned on her.

    Summary

    Like all good romance, it starts in the speakeasy.

    The mob boss's protégé, Victor Nikiforov runs an illegal juice joint and lives to forget. He runs through Chicago, chased by the French battlefields he once bled in, drinking until the sun rises and getting lost in jazz numbers. Engaging in an ill-fated romance with Yuuri Katsuki, a rival gang member and press informant, is just one of many bad decisions on his part. Falling in love means splitting their priorities, caught between protecting the ones they love and escaping their pasts.

    Rival gangs move closer to the boiling point of a new urban war. The Roaring Twenties open their black maw and threaten to swallow both of them whole—the antebellum is just the beginning.

    A storm is brewing in Chicago tonight.
