Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's pick is:
Ghostly Echoes by William Ritter
Series: Jackaby #3
To be published on August 23, 2016 by Algonquin Young Readers
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.
Why I'm waiting:
- The books in this series are always fun and quick to read, so I'm pretty sure that I'll enjoy this one as well.
- In the last book I thought there was some clues to a bigger plot arc for the series, and not just separate cases, so I can't wait to see if I was right (or not).
- I don't know if this is a trilogy or not, so probably gonna find out this time around.
Are you waiting for this book? Have you read it yet? Let me know!
