The Daily Booktalk: Waiting on Wednesday: The Empty Grave by Jonathan Stroud

The Empty Grave by Jonathan Stroud. Lockwood & Co. series #5. 448 p. Disney Press, September 12, 2017. 978148778722.

Publisher synopsis: Five months after the events in THE CREEPING SHADOW, we join Lockwood, Lucy, George, Holly and their associate Quill Kipps on a perilous night mission: they have broken into the booby-trapped Fittes Mausoleum, where the body of the legendary psychic heroine Marissa Fittes lies. Or does it?

This is just one of the many questions to be answered in Book 5 of the Lockwood & Co. series. Will Lockwood ever reveal more about his family's past to Lucy? Will their trip to the Other Side leave Lucy and Lockwood forever changed? Will Penelope Fittes succeed in shutting down their agency forever? The young agents must survive attacks from foes both spectral and human before they can take on their greatest enemy in a climactic and chaotic battle. And to prevail they will have to rely on help from some surprising and shadowy allies.

I just realized that I haven't read the fourth book! I'd better get on that soon! I thought The Screaming Staircase was superbly scary and suspenseful and loved the chemistry of the trio.
