This series gets better with each volume

This latest book in the Lewis Barnavelt series takes place at the same time as the previous volume "The Ghost In The Mirror". This is the story of Lewis and Jonathan and their trip to Europe.

Lewis here, is maturing and is less afraid of his own shadow. In fact, he is slowly, but naturally, becoming the real hero of the series, and not just a perpetual victim.

This is quite good and doesn't talk down to the young reader, while still providing some serious scares. I recommend this book.
