    • Abstract:
      Summary: As a massive outbreak of supernatural Visitors baffles Scotland Yard and causes protests throughout London, Lockwood & Co. continue to demonstrate their effectiveness in exterminating spirits. Anthony Lockwood is dashing, George insightful, and Lucy dynamic, while the skull in the jar utters sardonic advice from the sidelines. There is a new spirit of openness in the team now that Lockwood has shared some of his childhood secrets, and Lucy is feeling more and more as if her true home is at Portland Row. It comes as a great shock, then, when Lockwood and George introduce her to an annoyingly perky and hyper-efficient new assistant, Holly Munro.

*Starred Review* British actor Bevan shines in her narration of Stroud's third title in the Lockwood and Co. series, told from the viewpoint of 18-year-old Lucy, who works with investigators Anthony and George to try and solve mysterious, ghostly hauntings in the Chelsea region of London. Into the mix comes a new assistant, Holly, whose overly efficient manner, fastidiousness, and seemingly false sincerity annoy Lucy to no end. Bevan's tones show Lucy's annoyance and Holly's solicitousness, and during an all-out argument between the two, Bevan raises her voice to indicate flaring tempers. Listeners have no trouble visualizing the setting, as her English pronunciations ("rustling" sounds like roostling, and "London" comes across as Loondun) set place and tone with clarity. The voices of ghosts and a skull in a jar are distinguishable through changes in tone and inflection; one spirit even sounds a bit nasal. Bevan uses a newscaster-type voice when necessary and slides into a slight cockney accent for an eccentric ghost hunter known as Flo Bones. The veneer of superiority reflected in Miss Fiona Wintergarten, whose Hanover Square home is filled with ghosts, is marked by a haughty, slightly upper-crust British accent. Listeners don't have to be familiar with the previous two titles to find themselves immersed in the story, in which ghosts, poltergeists, skeletons, and creepy spirits abound; the tale is more fun than scary, and a surprise ending begs for more installments.
