Beastly Bones Sweepstakes!

We want to send you a copy of William Ritter’s Beastly Bones, available now from Algonquin Books!

“Some girls work in shops or sell flowers. Some girls find husbands and play house. I assist a mad detective in investigating unexplained phenomena. My name is Abigail Rook, and this is what I do.”

In Jackaby, Abigail Rook is newly arrived in New Fiddleham, New England, after escaping the dull life of Victorian high society her parents planned for her in Britain. There she meets the eccentric R.F. Jackaby, investigator of the supernatural. Abigail’s talent for spotting ordinary details in extraordinary situations makes her the perfect assistant for Jackaby, and soon they are on the hunt for a serial killer who is stalking the streets of New Fiddleham. In follow-up Beastly Bones, Abigail and Jackaby chase a trail of bodies, both human and animal, to a paleontological dig in nearby farming town Gad’s Valley, where they must face off against their most monstrous foe yet.
