The Boneshaker by Kate Milford
When the creepy Dr Jake Limberleg's Technological Medicine Show rides into her small town in 1913, Natalie begins to become aware that something is terribly wrong. Could there be a connection between Limberleg and the story that her mother has told her about the old bluesman, Tom, and his encounter with the devil at the crossroads? In a complex and intricate plot, Natalie has to take great risks to save her town and all the people in it. The Boneshaker is not a quick and easy read, but its spookiness will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck at times.
