Ghostly Echoes: A Jackaby Novel by William Ritter

Book Review: ‘Ghostly Echoes: A Jackaby Novel’ by William Ritter

The Jackaby novels by William Ritter are some of my all time favorite reads. They’re silly and scary Gilded Age mysteries wrapped up in a humorous paranormal package. If you love plucky heroines and quirky characters, you would enjoy these books immensely. Ghostly Echoes is the third novel in the Jackaby series and it’s absolutely wonderful. To tell the truth, while I liked the second book, I didn’t feel like it quite lived up to the adventure of the first novel. However, this third tome made up for it. It’s quick paced, packed with thrills and full of funny lines. I believe these books are marketed for the YA crowd, but they’re just as much fun for adults. In fact, the characters are grown. I think they’re only marketed as YA because they’re clean – no sex, no real cursing – and they didn’t know where else to put them.
