When the dead come back to haunt the living, Lockwood & Co. step in . . .

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. Agencies — meaning a business specializing in taking care of ghosts — have arisen to protect the public, for a fee.

The little twist is that only children and teenagers have the “talent” to sense the ghosts and they gradually lose this once they reach their twenties. We follow three young operatives of a Psychic Detection Agency as they battle this epidemic of ghosts.
