Doctor ​Who meets Sherlock in William Ritter’s original, engrossing, and tremendously fun debut novel, which features a detective of the paranormal as seen through the eyes of his adventurous and intelligent female assistant. It is 1892, and young Abigail Rook arrives in New Fiddleham, New England, with nothing but a suitcase and a handful of coins in her pocket. In a tavern, she meets the compelling and confounding R. F. Jackaby, an investigator of the unexplained with a keen eye for the extraordinary – including the ability to see supernatural beings. Abigail’s gift for noticing ordinary but important details makes her perfect for the position of Jackaby’s assistant. Hardly has she been hired when she finds herself in the midst of a thrilling case: a serial killer is on the loose in New Fiddleham. The police are convinced it’s an ordinary villain, but Jackaby is certain the foul deeds are the work of a nonhuman creature. Only handsome young detective Charlie Cane is willing to help Jackaby and Abigail, though his motives for taking such a risk are unclear. Set amidst the excitement, innovation, and mysticism of the late 19th century, Jackaby blends a classic detective story with cheeky humor and a fun touch of the macabre.
