About the story: It’s the year of 1982 and Abigail Rook just arrived in New Fiddleham, New England. In need of a job and place to stay she meets R. F. Jackaby, an investigator of the unexplained. With her eyes for detail, Abigail is the perfect assistant and soon joins Jackaby’s investigation agency.
Abigail’s investigation career starts with a more than thrilling case. A serial killer is on the loose, terrifying everyone in New Fiddleham. While everyone is convinced the killer is an ordinary human, Jackaby knows better. And soon Abigail will now that there is a lot more to our world than she thought.
My thoughts: Ever since I saw this book I knew I had to read it. This cover is just so beautiful and it suits the book so well. With Abigail and Jackaby we have two very lovable characters. Jackaby is so extra you just have to love him.
The only problem I had with it was that it was too fast paced. The main plot happens in one or two days. I would have loved to see it take place over a week or even longer so we could have learned more about supernatural creatures and could have developed the case a little further.
My Rating: ★★★★
