Jenny Cavanaugh, the ghostly lady of 926 Augur Lane, has enlisted the investigative services of her fellow residents to solve a decade-old murder—her own. Abigail Rook and her eccentric employer, Detective 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.
I super enjoyed reading this book 🙂
I have been a big fan of this series since the first book, and this one did not disappoint.
The best part of this series is the humor. I laughed more often then I thought I was going to, and it made me so happy.
The book did leave off in not so much a cliffhanger, but more of the book just kind of stopped. And I know that I am going to have to wait so long for the next book to come out. It is worse since I want it right NOW!
