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.

"Brilliant as ever." * Spectator *
"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 *

“Can't wait to read the rest of the series!”

The thing that I’m sure lots of readers will enjoy about this is that it’s a book that puts the power firmly in the hands of children. Sure there are adults about but since the walls between the living and the dead... More
