Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Five months after the events in THE CREEPING SHADOW, we join Lockwood, Lucy, George, Holly, and their associate Quill Kipps on a perilous night mission: they have broken into the booby-trapped Fittes Mausoleum, where the body of the legendary psychic heroine Marissa Fittes lies. Or does it? This is just one of the many questions to be answered in Book 5 of the Lockwood & Co. series. Will Lockwood ever reveal more about his family's past to Lucy? Will their trip to the Other Side leave Lucy and Lockwood forever changed? Will Penelope Fittes succeed in shutting down their agency forever? The young agents must survive attacks from foes both spectral and human before they can take on their greatest enemy in a climactic and chaotic battle. And to prevail they will have to rely on help from some surprising--and shadowy--allies. Jonathan Stroud once again delivers a rousing adventure full of danger, laughs, twists, and frights. The revelations will send readers back to Book 1 to start the series all over again. Exclusive to this paperback edition: a Lockwood & Co. short story, "The Dagger in the Desk," and an illustrated ghost guide.

Horn Book Review

Now a freelance operative independent of the scrappy psychic-detection agency Lockwood and Co., Lucy is surprised and secretly gratified when Lockwood himself shows up at her door, asking if he can hire her on a one-time basis to locate the source of the ghost of a gruesome cannibal. Then Lucy herself becomes the object of a homicidal manhunt, and must in turn ask Lockwood and Co. for aid. Bevans is an ideal voice for narrator Lucy--and just as much so for the seriess sardonic skull-in-a-jar who advises, chides, and ridicules Lucy with humorous acerbity, providing comic relief in this suspenseful and action-packed paranormal investigation. Special effects, dazzling fight scenes, British wit, and understated affection--Bevans quick delivery and flexible characterizations make for excellent diversionary listening. deirdre f. baker (c) Copyright 2017.
