    DescriptionDon't miss this "New York Times" bestselling sequel to the Edgar Award-nominated "THE NAME OF THE STAR"! After her near-fatal run-in with the Jack the Ripper copycat, Rory Devereaux has been living in Bristol under the close watch of her parents. So when her therapist suddenly suggests she return to Wexford, Rory jumps at the chance to get back to her friends. But Rory's brush with the Ripper touched her more than she thought possible: she's become a human terminus, with the power to eliminate ghosts on contact. She soon finds out that the Shades--the city's secret ghost-fighting police--are responsible for her return. The Ripper may be gone, but now there is a string of new inexplicable deaths threatening London. Rory has evidence that the deaths are no coincidence. Something much more sinister is going on, and now she must convince the squad to listen to her before it's too late. In this follow-up to the Edgar Award-nominated "THE NAME OF THE STAR," Maureen Johnson adds another layer of spectacularly gruesome details to the streets of London that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

    Review quote
    Praise for "THE MADNESS UNDERNEATH "(Book Two in the Shades of London series): A "New York Times" Bestseller! FROM "KIRKUS REVIEWS" "Creepy, clever and ambiguous second volume in the Shades of London series . . . As always, Johnson wields words with a supple facility that keeps those pages turning. The London minutiae are utterly engaging, the villains satisfyingly weird and numerous. And there is kissing." FROM "PUBLISHERS WEEKLY" "Rory's internal monologue sparkles with the wit that Johnson's fans (and most of Twitter) will recognize, which is plenty entertaining. The second half will satisfy readers' craving for what they came for--Rory's investigation of London's latest ghost crimes--while laying tragic groundwork for the next book." FROM "SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL" "Johnson's sharp wit is ever-present, and her heroine is the perfect blend of snark and teen anxiety." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Praise for "THE NAME OF THE STAR "(Book One in the Shades of London series): Nominated for the Edgar Award! "A gorgeously written, chilling, atmospheric thriller. The streets of London have never been so sinister or so romantic." --CASSANDRA CLARE, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments series "This book made me want to give up everything, move to London, and fight ghosts." --HOLLY BLACK, "New York Times" bestselling author of the Curse Workers series "An unputdownable thrill ride that will leave you gasping, laughing and dreaming of London." --ALLY CARTER, "New York Times" bestselling author of the Gallagher Girls series and "Heist Society" FROM "SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL" "Johnson uses a deft hand, applying the right amount of romance and teen snarkiness to relieve the story's building tension.
