The city of Lundenwich is overrun by the supernatural. Now there is also a murderer on the loose who threatens to destroy the peace of the metropolis.

For Tom, who lives a dreadful existence at St Mary’s Orphanage with an uncaring caretaker, nothing would be better than to find a real family. However, his life changes when he is recruited by a mysterious old woman for her funeral business. Soon, Tom discovers that there is more to the funeral home than meets the eye, and that Mrs Wickfield takes care of the deceased in a rather unexpected way, as she secretly leads a Society of half-detectives, half-medium children who help the police solve heinous crimes.

Now Tom has to stop a vicious killer, overcome his fear of ghosts, and prove himself worthy of being a member of the Society. Will he be able, with the help of his new friends, to re-establish the city’s equilibrium?

Scheele’s Green Ghosts is the first book in the Lundenwich Society saga, a thrilling Victorian-ish fantasy full of incredible machines, undead apparitions, ghastly crimes – and a pinch of humour. A story about life, death, and everything in between. If you love Neil Gaiman, J.K. Rowling and Ransom Riggs, this book is for you.
