The Diviners Flash-Fiction Contest Winners

Diviners Book Cover

Evie O’Neill didn’t expect New York to be quite so exciting. When she left her boring old town of Zenith, OH, for the big city, she couldn’t wait for the glamorous parties, the beautiful people, the movie palaces. But New York City in 1926 isn’t all dancing in your glad rags at the Cotton Club. Somewhere out there, something wicked is lurking . . . and he’s leaving behind clues. A dead girl, missing her eyes, with a word scrawled on her forehead and a symbol on her chest.

What does it all mean? And who—or what—is terrorizing New York?
