Lockwood & Co: The Creeping Shadow
But now Lockwood needs her help.
Penelope Fittes, leader of the well-renowned Fittes Agency wants Lockwood & Co. - and only them - to locate and remove the `Source' for the legendary Brixton Cannibal.
It's a tough assignment. Made worse by the tensions between Lucy and the other agents - even the skull is treating her like a jilted lover!
What will it take to reunite the team? Black marketeers, an informant ghost, a Spirit Cape that transports the wearer, and mysteries involving their closest rivals may just do the trick.
But not all is at it seems. And it's not long before a shocking revelation rocks Lockwood & Co. to its very core . . .

The team desperately need Lucy’s help. If she can be persuaded to return…
