The scariest legends are about to come true!
Molly Thompson has lots of questions. Questions like, is her Aunt Carol an undead fiend who drinks the blood of the living? Is she secretly lurking in the attic? And is Molly's friend Lowry a descendant of a long line of Kroglin werewolves?
Serious young historian Molly suspects that the creepy legends about her tourist town of Howlfair are starting to come true. But when her mother bans her from doing any further research, bookworm Molly and her friends - Lowry and guardian-cat Gabriel - become covert monster-hunters to keep Howlfair safe. It seems that someone is secretly trying to summon Howlfair's mythical monsters, and with the election of a new town mayor looming, everything - and everyone - is becoming increasingly suspicious...

'This spooky mystery is brilliantly written, VERY funny and has the BEST female protagonist I have come across in an age - in fact, I would gladly follow Molly Thompson to the Gates of Hell and back! Utterly brilliant!' * Imogen White, author of the ROSE MUDDLE MYSTERIES *
'A fabulously spooky read from the start. So refreshing to see a bold, resourceful and empathetic female protagonist who isn't afraid to stand out! I devoured this book in nearly one sitting. Nick has just made one heck of a splash onto the scene of spooky middle-grade fiction.' * Lindsay Currie, author of THE PECULIAR INCIDENT ON SHADY STREET *
