Things look up when a new client, Mr. Saunders, hires Lockwood and Co. to be present at the excavation of Edmund Bickerstaff, a Victorian doctor who reportedly tried to communicate with the dead. Saunders needs the coffin sealed with silver to prevent any supernatural trouble. All goes well - until George's curiosity attracts a horrible phantom.
Back home at Portland Row, Lockwood accuses George of making too many careless mistakes. Lucy is distracted by urgent whispers coming from the skull in the ghost jar. Then the team is summoned to DEPRAC headquarters. Kipps is there too, much to Lockwood's annoyance. Bickerstaff's coffin was raided and a strange glass object buried with the corpse has vanished. Inspector Barnes believes the relic to be highly dangerous, and he wants it found.
The author of the blockbuster Bartimaeus series delivers another amusing, chilling, and ingeniously plotted entry in the critically acclaimed Lockwood and Co. series.

What made the experience of listening to The Whispering Skull the most enjoyable?
The narration added so much to the story by bringing the characters to life. She successfully carried the various voices whether male or female characters.
What did you like best about this story?
The mixture of light heartedness and creepy in the context of a mystery worked to bring the reader along and pull them into the sorry.
What does Katie Lyons bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She truly brought the story to life adding the appropriate dimensions of emotion and carrying the tone of the story. Brilliant.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Another very good ghost story
As I said for book 1, Stroud writes a really good ghost story. This one is no exception. I've liked the first 2 so well that I'll be buying the rest of the series as they come out.
The narrator for this one is different from the first book, but she does an excellent job. The ghosts' whisperings she did are particularly creepy. I could easily see her telling fantastic stories around the camp fire. I don't see her listed for any other books on Audible, but I'll be surprised it stays that way for long. Lyons clearly has the talent for narrating books.
Between the story and the performance, this was a very enjoyable book to listen to.
