The Creeping Shadow (Lockwood & Co., #4)

The Creeping Shadow


After leaving Lockwood & Co. at the end of The Hollow Boy, Lucy is a freelance operative, hiring herself out to agencies that value her ever-improving skills. One day she is pleasantly surprised by a visit from Lockwood, who tells her he needs a good Listener for a tough assignment. Penelope Fittes, the leader of the giant Fittes Agency wants them--and only them--to locate and remove the Source for the legendary Brixton Cannibal. They succeed…


Once again, Lockwood and Co. take us on some exciting haunts. These stories are full of suspense and humor. The character development makes the reader wish they could be part of this successful agency. I must say that The Creping Shadow is similar in some ways to previous L. & Co. stories, in so much as they solve a large, but less significant mystery, only to be confronted with the larger mystery later on. I have enjoyed this series so far and look forward to the next installment!
