“First, a cat has suddenly shape-shifted into a fish, then its owner is mysteriously murdered. Next, fossils of a giant unknown creature go missing. The second book in William Ritter’s Jackaby series has Jackaby, a fantastical Sherlock Holmes, and Abigail Rook, his intuitive and intelligent Watson, teamed up with a host of characters to solve the case. With two paleontologists, a werewolf police detective, a big game hunter, and intrepid reporter, Abigail and Jackaby must navigate this mystery of a monster murdering people and mangling livestock. What they find is even more incredible than they could have imagined, and more dangerous. Beastly Bones has it all: mystery, self sacrifice, a feminist role model, with just a hint of romance.”
