THE WHISPERING SKULL, by Jonathan Stroud

skull

The story: When a haunted relic is unearthed in a local cemetery, it’s business as usual for Lockwood & Company…at first. But when the thieves who steal it from the coffin end up quite literally scared to death, it’s up to agents Lockwood, George and Lucy to track it down before anyone else looks into the mirror, goes insane, and ends up dead. Can they trust the clues only Lucy can hear coming from the whispering skull?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you like a creepy ghost story mixed in with a mystery, this is the book for you! You can read it as a stand-alone book, but it’s the second book in the “Lockwood and Company” series–so if you like reading things in order, check out “The Screaming Staircase” first.
