The brand-new Lockwood & Co. from global bestselling author, Jonathan Stroud. Ghouls and spectres beware, London's smallest (but best) psychic detection agency is on your case . . .
Jonathan Stroud was born in Bedford in 1970. After studying English Literature at York University, he moved to London, where he worked as an editor in a publishing firm. He is also the author of the best-selling BARTIMAEUS sequence, which is published in 35 languages and has sold 6 million copies worldwide, and also of four other novels- HEROES OF THE VALLEY, THE LAST SIEGE, THE LEAP and BURIED FIRE. He lives in Hertfordshire with his family. He has yet to see a ghost, but is keeping his eyes open.
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

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 *
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 *
I love this series so much, the characters are funny . . . the ghosts are awesome. * An Awful Lot of Reading *
