“Miss Rook, I am not an occultist,” Jackaby said. “I have
gift that allows me to see truth where others see the
illusion—and there are many illusions. All the world’s a
stage, as they say, and I seem to have the only seat in
house with a view behind the curtain.”
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
of Jackaby’s assistant. On her first day, Abigail finds
herself in the midst of a thrilling case: A serial killer
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
young detective named Charlie Cane—deny.
