A spirited series of “cosy gothic” ghostly mysteries set in the 1930s, starring supernatural sleuths, Lockett & Wilde.

“This book has more shadowy mysteries than twelve graveyards and more delicious twists than my favorite pretzel. All hail Lockett & Wilde!”
―Lemony Snicket

Matilda Lockett is used to playing the role of Poor Dead Edna the Orphan on stage with her spirit-medium aunt, Signora Valentina, and theatrical uncle Barnabus – but when they all decamp to Beauchamp Manor to deal with a most dreadful haunting, she discovers she really can see ghosts! There she meets ghost boy, Edgar Wilde, who shares her love of supernatural snooping, and together they set about unravelling the case of The Ghosts of the Manor.

Classic spooky mystery reimagined for fans of cosy crime. You'd have to be DEAD not to love it...

"Funny, spooky and cosy - I loved it!" -Andy Stanton
