Product description


Demelza loves science – she loves it so much that she’s been known to stay up late to work on her peculiar inventions.

But Demelza discovers she has inherited a distinctly un-scientific skill: Spectre Detecting.

Like her grandmother, she can summon the ghosts of the dead.

But when Grandma is kidnapped by a mysterious villain, she knows Spectre Detecting has something to do with it.

Only Demelza and her pasty best friend, Percy, can solve the deadly mystery …

  • The first book in this warm and eccentric middle-grade mystery series by debut author Holly Rivers.
  • Contemporary with a fantasy twist, this is thoroughly modern, charming and full of action – themes of death and the afterlife are handled with a light touch.
  • Lockwood & Co meets Skulduggery Pleasant with a fresh, funny twist.
  • As a child, Holly was a lead actress in ITV’s original Worst Witch series!
