Introducing Aldo Moon: abandoned at birth, raised at the Foundlings Hospital in London, then adopted by the well-to-do Carter family at the age of seven. The young psychic detective is always on the outside. Flamboyant, eccentric and a touch wild, Aldo has the ability to pick up 'ripples in the ether', which he uses to investigate intrigue and mystery in Victorian England. He is accompanied on his many adventures by the intrepid Nathan Carter, the story's narrator, and the prim arch-sceptic Lily Morelle. In this, their first case, the trio investigate the mysterious nightly noises at a rotting country house in the dead of winter. With the help of his companions, Aldo gradually uncovers a gripping, sinister secret at Gravewood Hall. Written in a wonderfully eloquent style and full of scares and psychic phenomena, Aldo Moon and the Ghost at Gravewood Hall is a young Sherlock Holmes with a chilling, supernatural twist that will appeal to a new generation.
"Aldo Moon is a real delight, witty, ghostly and at times deliciously ghastly." Peter James, International best-selling crime thriller novelist
