Publisher's Summary

Is Lemony Snicket a detective or a smoke detector?

Do you smell smoke? Young apprentice Lemony Snicket is investigating a case of arson but soon finds himself enveloped in the ever-increasing mystery that haunts the town of Stain'd-by-the-Sea. Who is setting the fires? What secrets are hidden in the Department of Education? Why are so many schoolchildren in danger? Is it all the work of the notorious villain Hangfire? How could you even ask that? What kind of education have you had?

Maybe you should be in school.

Critic Reviews

"Demands to be read twice: once for the laughs and the second time for the clues." ( The Boston Globe)
"A Pink Panther-esque page turner...exceptionally literary and entirely singular. Characterized by linguistic playfulness and an appreciation for the archaic, Who Could That Be at This Hour? is frequently laugh-out-loud hilarious...long-overdue, middle-grade follow-up series from a truly beloved narrator." ( Los Angeles Times)
"There's no stopping Snicket!" ( Booklist)

Superb

I am officially addicted to this series. The light and the dark perfectly intermingle to create an
amazingly good story.
I'm truly invested in the characters and I feel Lemony is the perfect antagonist for our time. He is genuinely flawed in many ways and yet a perfectly conceptualized hero--He is THE man for the job.
He is hope.
