Detective extraordinaire R. F. Jackaby and his intrepid assistant, Abigail Rook, are back with another supernatural mystery to solve. This one involves Jenny Cavanagh, the ghost who shares Jackaby's house, and her decade-old murder. Jenny is finally ready to know the truth about her death. But there's more to this mystery than who killded Jenny. And the why of it leads Abigail and Jackaby on another strange adventure that includes a mad scientist, a vampire, a shadowy organization, a magical plot, a short trip to the afterlife, and a machine that will change the world. It also left me on the edge of my seat anxiously awaiting the next book in this fabulous series.
I love Abigail Rook and her quirky, psychic employer. They are a great combination. And it was fun to have the ghostly Jenny take a more active role in this story. And Charlie Cane is in it, too! (He's in the first two books and a favorite character of mine.) Strange things are afoot in New Fiddleham in Ghostly Echoes, and I enjoyed every moment of this fun supernatural adventure. Now if only William Ritter would hurry up and write the next book!
Be sure to read these first:
Yay! Another Jackaby!ReplyDelete
I know, right? These books are so great. I love them. :)Delete
I never would have picked this book out, but it sounds like a great read, funny as well.ReplyDelete
I like that Ritter has created a detective similar to Sherlock Holmes but with a touch of the supernatural. But really it's Abigail Rook that these stories center around, and she's daring and smart and spunky. It's a nice combination.Delete
Good review! I've had my eye on this series since it first came out; it looks both interesting and exciting. Jackaby is in my Kindle; I really ought to start it soon.ReplyDelete
You won't be sorry. It's a very fun read. :)Delete
I've not heard of this author but this book sounds like an interesting read, with the paranormal aspects and not to mention mystery. :)ReplyDelete
I've liked all three books in this series...and am anxious for the next one to come out, which hardly ever happens. If you like a little supernatural with your sleuthing, these books are great!Delete
I've wondered about this series. I might just have to try it. I don't like that there's more books coming with no publication date in sight.ReplyDelete
But the first one, Jackaby, is SO good...and stands alone. No cliffhanger at the end. And if you like it, there's always books #2 and #3 already published. :)Delete
(I am hoping his next book comes out soon, though.)
Ok, you have convinced me, I need to put these on my TBR list!ReplyDelete
At least try the first one and see if you like it...which I really think you will. :)
