Jackaby - William Ritter
Newly arrived in New Fiddleham, New England, 1892, and in need of a job,Abigail
Rook meets R. F. Jackaby, an investigator of the unexplained with a
keen eye for the extraordinary--including the ability to see
supernatural beings. Abigail has a gift for noticing ordinary but
important details, which makes her perfect for the position of Jackaby’s
assistant. On her first day, Abigail finds herself in the midst of a
thrilling case: A serial killer is on the loose. The police are
convinced it’s an ordinary villain, but Jackaby is certain it’s a
nonhuman creature, whose existence the police--with the exception of a
handsome young detective named Charlie Cane--deny.
