Fans of Jonathan Stroud’s Bartimaeus books will be delighted to find the same ingredients in this thrilling and chilling new series.

A sinister problem has occurred in London: all nature of ghosts‚ haunts‚ spirits and specters are appearing‚ and they aren’t exactly friendly. Only young people have the psychic abilities required to see — and eradicate — these supernatural foes. Many Psychic Detection Agencies have cropped up to handle the work‚ and are in fierce competition. Plucky and talented Lucy Carlyle teams up with Lockwood & Co.‚ a small agency independent of adult supervision.
