Jackaby by William Ritter

jackbyMy review of this book : great!  The reason is because mystery is one of my favorite genres.  This book, Jackaby, is about a girl named Abigail Rook.   She comes to New Fiddleham, England in 1892.  She needs a job and accidentally meets an investigator/detective named R. F. Jackaby.  Jackaby has a superpower which lets him see  other creatures with supernatural powers.  On Abigail’s first case, Jackaby and  her need to find a serial killer  The police think it just an ordinary criminal, but Jackaby and Abigail have different thoughts.  Thanks to Jackaby’s ability they know he is a monster.  The only police officer that believes the two investigators is Charlie Cane.  My favorite part of this spectacular book is when Doctor Who greets Sherlock.  Overall, I loved this book and would love to read the sequel.

A young woman named Abigail Rook has arrived at a small time in New Fiddleham, New England in the 1800’s.  From there, she looks for a job so she can put a roof over her head.  That is where she meets a detective called Jackaby.  He hires her as an assistant since she has good experience.  Jackaby and Abigail must find the culprit of a mysterious serial killer and start their adventure.  My favorite character is Jackaby because he has an eye that can see very out of the ordinary things, and he is good at what he does best.  My favorite part was when Jackaby gave Abigail her own leather cased handbook and a magnifying glass because in the beginning of the book she made a joke about needing them for her position at work.  I give this book an 8 out of 10 because there were parts that were boring, but the mystery was always there.
