"Opium and Absinthe is the richly seductive tale of a young Gilded Age heiress's journey down a beguiling but dangerous path in search of her sister's blood-draining killer. Chillingly timely in its portrait of opiates' deadly allure, Kang's story shimmers with betrayed innocence and the power of trusting one's inner compass." --Marlowe Benn, author of Relative Fortunes

"Twisty and spooky and smart, Kang's mystery richly captures the era with its packed full, fast-moving plot and a complex heroine whose flaws feel both very real and tremendously sympathetic." --Megan Chance, author of A Drop of Ink, The Visitant, Inamorata, and Bone River

"Fascinating, funny, thrilling and even a little scary, Opium and Absinthe is a rare treat. Wonderfully written, and meticulously researched, Opium and Absinthe is a page-turner that left me wanting more." --Eoin Dempsey, bestselling author of White Rose, Black Forest
