Staff Reviews

Jenny Cavanaugh, the apparition and landlord of 826 Augur Lane, is finally ready to face the truth behind her decade-old murder. But just as her friends R. F. Jackaby and Abigail Rook begin to investigate her case, another murder almost identical to Jenny’s occurs and sends Jackaby and Abigail into a deeper mystery than they had anticipated. The third novel in the Jackaby series, Ghostly Echoes spirals into a slowly unraveling mystery where what is around the next corner is always uncertain. It continues the wit and magic of the first two novels, but adds even more secrecy and intrigue to its winding plot.

Jenny wanted to attempt possession, and in my foolish eagerness I agreed.

The office faded into a blinding haze of whiteness, and together Jenny and I tumbled into a world of mist and cold and pain . . .

. . . and out the other side.

Jenny Cavanaugh, the ghostly lady of 926 Augur Lane, has enlisted the services of her detective-agency tenants to solve a decade-old murder--her own. Abigail Rook and her eccentric employer, R. F. Jackaby, dive into the cold case, starting with a search for Jenny's fianc , 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. Soon Abigail's race to unravel the mystery leads her down to the mythical underworld and deep into her colleagues' grim histories to battle the most deadly foe she has ever faced.
