    Spoilers this way

    Screams of excitement as I REALLY LOVE this book I don’t remember when was the last time I read a book with ghosts in English. I always read my horror in Arabic so I can get to the mood but this one scared me like a baby. I could not sleep with the lights off. Thanks to Mr. Stroud we have now an alternative London with all the joy adding ghosts wondering at the night making lives way interesting for ghost hunting agencies and scary for the rest of the world. So as the the world struggle with the visitors we meet our wonderful three teenagers agents Anthony Lockwood, George Cubbins and the new edition Lucy Carlyle. I have enjoyed every moment of the story; the chemistry and humor between the three which is going to make you stay up all night finish the book wondering what happened to Annie Ward and what/where is the screaming staircase itself. In the middle of the story you would be wondering why is all of this happening but by the 100 last pages you will find a new level of neat horror and your answers. Very well build believable story. I need part tow right now…
