Publisher's Summary

Sherlockian detective of the supernatural R. F. Jackaby and his intrepid assistant, Abigail Rook, search for their ghostly landlady Jenny Cavanaugh's murderer and fight their most fearsome foe yet in the highly anticipated third volume of this New York Times best-selling paranormal mystery series.

Jenny Cavanaugh, the ghostly landlord 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 fiancé, who went missing the night she died. But when a new gruesome murder closely mirrors the events of 10 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 19th-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.

    Story
    "Sherlock Holmes crossed with Harry Dresden"

    The above heading may be an over simplification, but that's the best way to quickly describe the spirit of the Jackaby books by William Ritter. I've enjoyed each of the books in this series so far, but Ghostly Echoes expands the mythology of these stories in new and exciting ways. This seems like a turning point for the series and Ritter does a great job of expanding the scope of this world without sacrificing the character development that makes these stories great. This was not what I was expecting from this book (but in a good way). Instead of a "case of the week" story, we get a intriguing peek behind the curtain of the larger Jackaby world that Ritter has created. Lots of fun, with great characters to boot.
    For me, narration can make or break an audiobook and they have found the perfect performer to narrate the adventures of Abigail Rook, R. F. Jackaby and friends. Highly recommend for fans of Conan Doyle and Jim Butcher. Can't wait for the next story.

    Overall enjoy,able. The storyline is good and there lots of action and good dialogue. Nicolas Barber narrates/perform well and the characters were well portrayed. I hope there will more on Charlie's hdc and Abigail's romance though. I am looking forward to the next book on this series.

    "Another winner from William Ritter"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Nicola does a fantastic job with each character and their personalities whether it's with accents, gender, or emotions. I am very much looking forward to book 4.........

    Recently found a love for books and with Audible I can clean and keep going - I also use it in my classroom to urge kids to read.

    "Ghostly Echoes Will stay with you"

    With in the world of the paranormal, current societal issues will be a revealed. This was a great book and though I read out of order: don't do it. I was confused 1/2 through the book. Finally , I got my characters straight. This was one of the best YA books with paranormal activity and I lays way for another great episode of Jackaby.

    "Ties up Jenny's Story, but not as satisfying"
    Any additional comments?

    Ties up Jenny's Story, and other peripheral characters; but not as satisfying as the previous 2 books. Having just finished this audio book, I am disappointed because it doesn't feel as "meaty" or fresh as books 1 & 2. It was wonderful to tie up threads that provide a bit more character development, but was it important to the series? Questionable.

    The pros are a few new "beings", a trip into the underworld, and abilities they may go some where if there is another book.

    Finally, the narration isn't maturing with the books which detracts from the story.

    I loved it this series just gets better and better after every book. Barber and Ritter are a dream team. Hope this isn't the last book.

    "Not quite as good as the other jackaby novels"

    The other Jackaby novels left me a bit more satisfied than this one did. While it did have some interesting parts, I felt that Ghostly Echoes probably would have been better having been melded into a future novel in the series.
