A peak into The Whispering Skull Lockwood & Co 2

This week I am reading The Whispering Skull the second Lockwood & Co book. I suppose I should have saved it for next month, but it is too much fun!

For Book Beginnings on Friday, hosted by Rose City Reader this is how the story starts ...

"Don't look now," Lockwood said. "There's two of them." 

I snatched a glance behind me and saw that he was right. Not far off, on the other side of the glade, a second ghost had risen from the earth. Like the first, it was a pale, man-shaped curtain of mist that hovered above the dark, wet grass. 

For The Friday 56 hosted at Freda's Voice something from page of The Whispering Skull ...

"We're hoping you might be able to give us some assistance this evening," Saunders went on. "'Course, I've got a good day team working under me already: spadesmen, backhoe drivers, corpse wranglers, light technicians . . . plus the usual night squad. But tonight we need some proper agency firepower as well." 

He winked at us, as if that settled the matter, and took a loud slurp of tea. Lockwood's polite smile remained fixed, as if nailed in position. "Indeed. And what exactly would you want us to do? And where ?" 

The non-fiction stuff I am reading this week is all about clay mineralogy and x-ray diffraction, so I will spare you that.  Have a great weekend!


  1. I like the visual of a man sipping tea while calmly discussing corpse wranglers! I hope you're enjoying this story.
    Here's the link to my Friday post: The Merry-Go-Round.

  2. Ooh this is my kind of book. I'm going to add this to my Halloween reading list. Both books! Thanks for sharing.
    Here is my 56 -

  3. Oh I love this! I'm glad you didn't wait to share because now I can get it for next month. This definitely sounds like a lot of fun and I think I'll take ghosts and corpse wranglers over clay mineralogy and x-ray diffraction!

  4. The first book in this series is on my TBR list.
