Publisher's Summary

**Named an 'Amazing Audiobook for Young Adults 2015' by the Young Adult Library Services Association**

Ghosts and ghouls beware! London's smallest, shabbiest, and most talented psychic detection agency is back.

Life is never exactly peaceful for Lockwood & Co. Lucy and George are trying to solve the mystery of the talking skull trapped in their ghost jar, while Lockwood is desperate for an exciting new case.

Things seem to be looking up when the team is called to Kensal Green Cemetery to investigate the grave of a sinister Victorian doctor. Strange apparitions have been seen there, and the site must be made safe. As usual, Lockwood is confident; as usual, everything goes wrong - a terrible phantom is unleashed, and a dangerous object is stolen from the coffin.

Lockwood & Co must recover the relic before its power is unleashed, but it's a race against time. Their obnoxious rivals from the Fittes agency are also on the hunt. And if that's not bad enough, the skull in the ghost-jar is stirring again....

The author of the blockbuster Bartimaeus sequence delivers another humorous and chilling instalment in the critically acclaimed Lockwood & Co. series.

    "Talk about a cliff hanger"

    No spoilers but I can't wait for more in the series. The characters are interesting and you can relate to them, the plots are in some ways predictable but that's half the fun (also I'm 37).

    "Fantastic Fantasy!"
    If you could sum up Lockwood & Co. in three words, what would they be?

    Imaginative,compelling, well-read


    What other book might you compare Lockwood & Co. to, and why?

    Bartomeus trilogy


    What does Katie Lyons bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Her voice and reading personalises the character


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    too numerous to enumerate!


    Any additional comments?

    Makes a long car journey fly by.

    "Spooky, and spellbinding throughout"

    loved it and could not put it down. a great listen. a book for teenagers and adults alike and I am getting hooked into the L&Co adventures. read the first one as there are references even though this one stands alone.

    "Stroud strikes again Stand by to be spooked"

    This is another magnificent book by Jonathan Stroud. It is spooky, gripping and funny. There are twist and turns, clues and answers. The unanswered question, what is Lockwood hiding. The book is let down by Katie Lyon's performance. She sounds the same as as Miranda Raison to start with but has none of the subtlety or range. When Lockwood, Lucy and George are talking it is impossible to tell who is speaking. She does a passable chirpy cockney which she uses liberally but that is as far as it goes. As a Whispering Skull she is laughable. An excellent book let down by a poor choice of narrator,

    "Terrific sequel to Screaming Staircase"

    If you enjoy Garth Nix, you will love Jonathan Stroud. My two teenagers are delighted by these funny, creative, scary stories. I enjoy them too!
