We find ourselves in a world where malevolent ghosts roam the streets after dark and adults, unable to see the ghosts or defend themselves, must rely on the superior senses and quick wits of children. Especially talented children join ghost-hunting agencies and join battle against these forces of darkness.
The central characters are interesting and believable: fierce Lucy, mysterious Lockwood and grumpy George. The adventures they embark upon are suitably ominous -and in parts, frankly terrifying. An excellent read!
