Publisher's Summary

Two kids find a haunted opera score capable of raising the dead!

When Lewis Barnavelt and Rose Rita Pottinger explore an abandoned theater, they discover an unpublished opera score entitled "The Day of Doom". Ignoring a strange omen, they show it to their music teacher, who heralds "The Day of Doom" as a masterpiece. Little do they know that the eerie Henry Vanderhelm, the composer's grandson, arrives - with a plan. A plan to awaken the dead and enslave the world!

Lewis and Rosarita try to save the world... again

Lewis Barnavelt and Rosarita Pottinger are pretty much on their own after accidentally releasing a ghost with apocalyptic plans. It's the entire town working against them this time and with Jonathan and Mrs Zimmerman out of town, the kids are up against it.

This is a fun and fast read/listen. The series gets better with each volume. That said, this is the final volume that had input from the late John Bellairs. How much that will impact the series going forward remains to be seen. But for now, get this book and enjoy.
