ɑƨħŵɑɡ ♥Team Magnus Damora FOREVER♥ (unheard) | 2446 comments “I’ve found very little about private detective R. F. Jackaby to be standard in the time I’ve known him. Working as his assistant tends to call for a somewhat flexible relationship with reality.”

In 1892, New Fiddleham, New England, things are never quite what they seem, especially when Abigail Rook and her eccentric employer R. F. Jackaby are called upon to investigate the supernatural.

First, a vicious species of shape-shifters disguise themselves as a litter of kittens, and a day later, their owner is found murdered with a single mysterious puncture wound. Then in nearby Gad’s Valley, now home to the exiled New Fiddleham police detective Charlie Cane, dinosaur bones from a recent dig mysteriously go missing, and an unidentifiable beast starts attacking animals and people, leaving their mangled bodies behind. Charlie calls on Abigail for help, and soon Abigail and Jackaby are on the hunt for a thief, a monster, and a murderer.

Karen Barber | 10005 comments Not sure who’d set up the BR for 2nd March, but I’ve started a little late. Ch1-4 get us straight back into the quirkiness of the world of Jackaby...carnivorous shape-shifters?


message 41: by Karen (new)

Karen Barber | 10005 comments Up to ch16. Jenny’s story is definitely going to be interesting, but I’m guessing we won’t get told anything for a while. Some curious characters already.


message 42: by Karen (new)

Karen Barber | 10005 comments Up to ch20. Such a minor moment, but the reporter’s put-down of Lamb is a wonderful moment.


message 43: by Karen (new)

Karen Barber | 10005 comments Up to ch25. Incredible. Always feel as if Jackaby is a step ahead of everyone else.

I've not been quite so put off by these comments because they are challenged.

Yes. It is a challenge. I wasn't put off by it buy I dont like the way she and some of our modern ladies think. Something Jackaby said to Abigail on later chapters shows that a man of his time period can be feminist too!

Noninuna (dereadinggirl) | 44 comments Finished. I'm excited for the next book!
