Ghostly Echoes (Jackaby #3) by William Ritter (WOW #13)

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!

Jenny Cavanaugh, the ghostly landlord of 826 Augur Lane, has enlisted the services of her detective-agency tenants to solve a decade-old murder--her own. Abigail Rook and her eccentric employer, R. F. Jackaby, dive into the cold case, starting with a search for Jenny’s fiancé, who went missing the night she died. But when a new, gruesome murder closely mirrors the events of ten years prior, Abigail and Jackaby realize that Jenny’s case isn’t so cold after all, and her killer may be far more dangerous than they suspected.

Fantasy and folklore mix with mad science as Abigail’s race to unravel the mystery leads her across the cold cobblestones of nineteenth-century New England, down to the mythical underworld, and deep into her colleagues’ grim histories to battle the most deadly foe she has ever faced.

So last year around my birthday I began this incredible series. All I knew going into it was that it was like Sherlock meets Dr. Who, which is a hard thing to pass up. I was immediately taken by the story and swept away in the mystery of it all. So far this series has been captivating and all around amazing and this next mystery has been building since the first book and I can't wait for the truth to come into the light! P.S. PURPLE COVER!!!

So, what are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  1. The purple cover gets my vote too Zach. I still need to read the first two but hey, at least I own them.
