Lockwood & Co: The Creeping Shadow
Now a major Netflix series!
Lucy has left Lockwood & Co. A freelance operative, she is hiring herself out to other agencies – agencies that might value her ever-improving skills.
But now Lockwood needs her help.
Penelope Fittes, leader of the well-renowned Fittes Agency wants Lockwood & Co. – and only them – to locate and remove the ‘Source’ for the legendary Brixton Cannibal.
It’s a tough assignment. Made worse by the tensions between Lucy and the other agents – even the skull is treating her like a jilted lover!
What will it take to reunite the team? Black marketeers, an informant ghost, a Spirit Cape that transports the wearer, and mysteries involving their closest rivals may just do the trick.
But not all is at it seems. And it’s not long before a shocking revelation rocks Lockwood & Co. to its very core . . .
‘Stroud is a genius’ – Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series.
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 *
