Jackaby by William Ritter
This is an exciting new novel featuring two memorable characters. Abigail Rook has recently arrived in New Fiddleham in New England. It is 1852 and most young women do not travel the world seeking adventure. But Abigail most decidedly does. She is looking for work and comes across a notice for an office assistant and goes to the address listed. What she discovers is an altogether bizarre house inhabited by some very unusual occupants including R.F. Jackaby. Jackaby is a bit like Sherlock Holmes in his quirky brilliance, but Jackaby has the added ability to discern supernatural forces. Upon her arrival at Jackaby’s, Abigail is immediately launched into his investigations of several murders and she certainly gets her share of adventure. Clever dialogue, fantastical creatures, and fast-moving plot all add to make this book a really fun read. Oregon author Ritter has written an action-packed book geared for young adults, but enjoyable for all ages. I look forward to future Jackaby and Rook adventures. 9.95
