When the dead come back to haunt the living, Lockwood & Co. step in . . .
What is Lockwood & Co about?
Lockwood & Co. is a middle grade supernatural thriller written by English author Jonathan Stroud. The story takes place in an alternative modern-day London which experiences an event called “the Problem”, where ghosts appear throughout the city by nighttime and attack the living.
