The spirits were at work here, somehow. But why? On returning to London, Ellie investigates the mystery surrounding 47 Foster Square. Who is the sender of ghostly messages asking her for help? What is the secret of the Meadowes family? And what does Edward know about all this? With her parents about to divorce, and her Mum acting very strangely, Ellie quickly discovers that a sinister force lies between her and the truth... The Spirit of London is the second instalment in the thrilling and suspenseful 'Spirits' series and follows the success of The People's Book Prize-nominated Childish Spirits. It focuses on slavery and a mixed-race family in Georgian times. Ellie finds herself facing a very dangerous foe and will need all her courage and humanity to get her through. The Spirit of London also sets up a story arc that will continue into future books in the series. The book will appeal to girls and boys of upper primary and lower secondary age - and to parents and teachers reading the book aloud!

MEDIA REVIEWS
'There are a lot of things to like about The Spirit of London. It focuses on an under-explored aspect of London - slavery and black history, adding to the reader's knowledge and understanding. It has some genuinely creepy moments but it also has some great moments of slapstick to ease the tension. It's an absorbing read but not an overly long one. And there really isn't anything to dislike. Recommended.' -- TheBookbag.co.uk
'It's a terrific read, no matter how old you are! Chilling atmosphere, great sense of history, superb story all round.' -- Books Monthly
'Pulling issues of family separation, slavery and racism into the mix, this tale is an engaging ghost story for readers of nine and above, with a satisfying plot and clear written style...the scene where Edward apparently returns to life, and samples the delights of 21st century culture, is very entertaining.' -- Readers' Review
