Waiting on Wednesday #98: Beastly Bones by William Ritter


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.


Beastly Bones by William Ritter is the second book in the Jackaby series. It's due to be released September 22, 2015 by Algonquin Young Readers.

Synopsis from Goodreads

“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.


Why am I waiting on this book? It's the sequel to Jackaby; and I really enjoyed Jackaby. I liked the character which was said to be a cross between Doctor Who and Sherlock Holmes. The story itself was good too. My review of Jackaby can be found here.
