Lockwood & Co: The Hollow Boy

Lockwood & Co: The Hollow Boy

Summary

Soon to be a major Netflix series!

Lockwood & Co. might be the smallest (some might say shambolic) Psychic Detection Agency in London. But its three agents - Lockwood, Lucy and George - are exceptional Talents. And they get results. When an outbreak of ghostly phenomena grows to terrifying levels in Chelsea, Scotland Yard is left baffled.

Even more baffling is that Lockwood & Co appear to have been excluded from the huge team of Agents investigating the Chelsea Outbreak. Surely this is the perfect chance for them to show once and for all that they're actually the best in town? Well, that's if they can put aside their personal differences for long enough to march into action with their rapiers, salt and iron . . .

Ghouls and spectres, thrills and tension in this third instalment in Jonathan Stroud's bestselling series.

'Stroud is a genius' - Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series.

Reviews

  • If you’re in the market to have your pants scared off this Halloween, this atmospheric tale, finely balanced between horror and humour, will definitely do the trick . . . There are few writers whose work I look forward to more.
    Imogen Russell Williams, Middle Grade Strikes Back
