It's another holiday and Mayor Randall Shiffley has turned Caerphilly, Virginia into Spooky City, USA. The residents are covering every window with cobwebs and roaming the streets in costume to entertain the tourists, and Meg's grandfather is opening a new "Creatures of the Night" exhibit in the zoo. When a real body at the zoo and a suspicious fire at the Haunted House threaten to mar the town's creepy fun, it's up to Meg Langslow to save Halloween.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Halloween is fast approaching, and Caerphilly's 10-day Halloween Festival is in full swing. This time volunteer extraordinaire Meg Langslow is only in charge of the Visitor Relations and Police Liaison Patrol, more commonly known as the Goblin Patrol, since Mayor Randall Shiffley hired Lydia Van Meter to run the festival. However, when fake body parts turn up in exhibits at the local zoo, followed by two murders and an attack on Dr. Smoot, owner of the festival's Haunted House, Meg assists Chief Burke with his investigation. They soon learn LARPers (live action role players) are acting out a creepy scavenger hunt in Caerphilly with a game master who may be bent on murder. With the town overrun by vampires, zombies, and other creatures of the night, Meg, the Goblin Patrol, and her grandfather's group of animal activists, Blake's Brigade, work to find the miscreants and a murderer whose crimes may be tied to old family secrets. Quirky, sympathetic characters, from Meg's large extended family to a town full of Shiffley cousins, are woven throughout this fun, humorous, atmospheric cozy.--O'Brien, Sue Copyright 2015 Booklist"
