The brand-new Lockwood & Co. from global bestselling author, Jonathan Stroud. Ghouls and spectres beware, London's smallest (but best) psychic detection agency is back, and 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 the author of the best-selling BARTIMAEUS sequence, which is published in 35 languages and has sold 6 million copies worldwide. As well as four other novels- HEROES OF THE VALLEY, THE LAST SIEGE, THE LEAP and BURIED FIRE, Jonathan is now writing a chilling new series called LOCKWOOD & CO. He lives in Hertfordshire with his family.
"like the Famous Five fused with HP Lovecraft [...] cosy and terrifying" -- Suzi Feay * Financial Times * "Stroud's nerve-shredding ghouls, laconic hilarity and intelligent character development make him a must for fiction aficionados with an iron nerve" -- Imogen Russell-Williams * Guardian * "this spine-chilling adventure is the perfect ghostly read" -- Book Club * The Week Junior * "Brilliant as ever" * Spectator * "All the books in the series have been excellent, but in The Creeping Shadow, Stroud manages to pile mystery on top of suspense, leaving me with the feeling that a year is far, far, too long to wait for the concluding part of a series that instantly shot to the very top of my reading pile. This is young adult writing of the very highest quality." -- Linda Wilson * Crime Review *
