Publisher Description

Lockwood & Co. might be the smallest (some might say shambollic) Psychic Detection Agency in London. But its three agents - Lockwood, Lucy and George - are exceptional Talents. And they get results. When an outbreak of ghostly phenomena grows to terrifying levels in Chelsea, Scotland Yard is left baffled.

Even more baffling is that Lockwood & Co appear to have been excluded from the huge team of Agents investigating the Chelsea Outbreak. Surely this is the perfect chance for them to show once and for all that they're actually the best in town? Well, that's if they can put aside their personal differences for long enough to march into action with their rapiers, salt and iron . . .

Ghouls and spectres, thrills and tension in this brand-new instalment in Jonathan Stroud's bestselling series.

'Stroud is a genius' - Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series.

Back Cover

Phantoms in your attic? Spectres by your bed? Never fear - Lockwood & Co. are here! A terrible new outbreak of ghosts is causing chaos across London. With the authorities baffled, psychic investigators Lockwood, Lucy and George see a fresh chance for fame and glory. But countless horrors await them: bloody footprints on a spiral staircase, murderous ambushes in the night - and, waiting at the centre of the outbreak, the most fearful apparition of all.

Review

I love this series so much, the characters are funny . . . the ghosts are awesome. An Awful Lot of Reading I enjoyed it so much, I hope there will be yet another book soon to follow in this fabulously told series. Amazed Earthling, with Guardian Children's Books Brilliant as ever. Spectator Publication of a new Lockwood and Co. adventure must qualify as one of the literary events of the year. Jonathan Stroud not only writes like a dream, he creates some of the most inventive, most exciting storylines around. -- Andrea Reece LoveReading If you're in the market to have your pants scared off this Halloween, this atmospheric tale, finely balanced between horror and humour, will definitely do the trick . . . There are few writers whose work I look forward to more. -- Imogen Russell Williams Middle Grade Strikes Back
