Opium and Absinthe by Lydia Kang EPUB
From the bestselling author of A Beautiful Poison comes another spellbinding historical novel full of intrigue, occult mystery, and unexpected twists.
New York City, 1899. Tillie Pembrokeâ€™s sister lies dead, her body drained of blood and with two puncture wounds on her neck. Bram Stokerâ€™s new novel, Dracula, has just been published, and Tillieâ€™s imagination leaps to the impossible: the murderer is a vampire. But it canâ€™t be - can it?
A ravenous reader and researcher, Tillie has something of an addiction to truth, and she wonâ€™t rest until she unravels the mystery of her sisterâ€™s death. Unfortunately, Tillieâ€™s addicted to more than just truth; to ease the pain from a recent injury, sheâ€™s taking more and more laudanum...and some in her immediate circle are happy to keep her well supplied.
Tillie canâ€™t bring herself to believe vampires exist. But with the hysteria surrounding her sisterâ€™s death, the continued vampiric slayings, and the opium swirling through her body, itâ€™s becoming increasingly difficult for a girl who relies on facts and figures to know whatâ€™s real - or whether she can trust those closest to her.
