A supernatural thriller about a teenage Victorian ghost hunter.
Flamboyant, eccentric and a touch wild, Aldo has the ability to pick up ‘ripples in the ether’, which he uses to investigate supernatural goings-on in late 19th century England. He is accompanied on his many adventures by the intrepid and volatile Nathan Carter, the story’s narrator, and the prim, arch-sceptic Lily Morelle. In this, his first adventure, Aldo inquires into mysterious nocturnal noises at a spooky house in the country. With the help of his companions, he gradually uncovers an evil and sinister secret at Gravewood Hall.
