Lockwood & Co. might be the smallest (some might say shambolic) 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 best-selling series.

Got a little bit scared
I've enjoyed all of the Lockwood & Co books so far, but this was the one that prompted me to recommmend the series to my older brother. Putting that into context I'm in my forties and I'm recommending a young adult book to another no longer young adult.
There was a section in this book where the combination of Jonathan's words and Emily's narration had me gripping the steering wheel and emitting a eeeeek sound and I was genuinely a little bit scared despite the fact I was commuting on a bright sunny day.
I love the characters, their humour and their flaws. There is a believable historical tapestry surrounding them.
How the many different strands of plot are carefully twisted through the stories.
Lucy's character comes through well in the narration, though the change in Lockwood from the previous narrator was a bit odd.
Emily did a very good job in building up the nervous anticipation whenever the team went into action.
Eeeek and 'Oh Lucy'.
Last book of the series is on pre-order.
Brilliant story, brilliant narrator
One of the best. We love the whole Lockwood series.
Skull. The narrator gives it a great voice.
The ending - wasn't expecting that and it was a good twist.
We're listening to it for a second time!
