Publisher Description

A sinister Problem has occurred in London: all nature of ghosts, haunts, spirits, and specters are appearing throughout the city, and they aren't exactly friendly. Only young people have the psychic abilities required to see-and eradicate-these supernatural foes. Many different Psychic Detection Agencies have cropped up to handle the dangerous work, and they are in fierce competition for business.

In The Screaming Staircase, the plucky and talented Lucy Carlyle teams up with Anthony Lockwood, the charismatic leader of Lockwood & Co, a small agency that runs independent of any adult supervision. After an assignment leads to both a grisly discovery and a disastrous end, Lucy, Anthony, and their sarcastic colleague, George, are forced to take part in the perilous investigation of Combe Carey Hall, one of the most haunted houses in England. Will Lockwood & Co. survive the Hall's legendary Screaming Staircase and Red Room to see another day?

Listeners who enjoyed the action, suspense, and humor in Jonathan Stroud's internationally bestselling Bartimaeus books will be delighted to find the same ingredients, combined with deliciously creepy scares, in his thrilling and chilling Lockwood & Co. series.

Jonathan Stroud delivers!

Sooooo good!!!! Going to go and listen to it again. I admit, I was not sure Jonathan Stroud could recapture the same magic after his Bartimaeus series, which was spectacular, but Lockwood & Co. paints a new set of characters as equally as interesting and a plot so hair-raising, I was on the edge of my seat the entire book! Bartimaeus meets Nancy Drew, sort of. Suspenseful and macabre and a bit of humor. An alternate reality where ghosts are the norm. Looks like a new series in the making. I can’t wait for the next installment.

Captivating and enjoyable!

I’m always looking for great audiobooks to listen to while I am driving on the weekends to visit my family. "The Screaming Staircase” completely detoured me into a fascinating new world, rich with characters and a compelling story. I am thrilled to see the next Lockwood and Co. book was just released, and I will probably gobble that one up on my Thanksgiving travels.
