Reviewer Rating:


Lucy Carlyle has joined Lockwood & Co. It's a ghost hunting agency run by tweeners in turn of the century London. They are trying to deal with "the problem".  In their world ghosts are more present and dangerous and most people don't go out after dark because getting touched by a ghost is fatal. The company is owned and run by John Lockwood and George is the researcher. Most of these agencies use child agents because they are more sensitive to ghosts. John can see ghosts better, but Lucy can hear them.  Skills that disappear in adulthood.  A botched ghost recovery leads them to try to solve the previously unsolvable, but dangerous, mystery of the screaming staircase to save their agency and reputation. Book 1 in a future series with more anticipated ghost hunting to come.
