The town of Caerphilly, Virginia, isn't known for taking their celebrations lightly. And neither is Meg Langslow. But for Halloween this year, Meg is finally catching a break. Instead of having the planning and execution of the holiday mysteriously fall on her shoulders while she's not looking, the town has hired a professional planner instead, ostensibly making her life easier.

Technically, Meg only needs to lead the Goblin Patrol, which is the shorter and catchier name for The Visitor Relations and Police Liaison Patrol, a volunteer band that watches out for people misbehaving during a holiday known for pranks and tricks. But with the Expert Organizer calling on her every time she turns around, Meg wonders if this isn't actually more stressful than doing it herself. And, of course, as the saying goes: all's fun and games until someone loses an eye. Or in this case, ends up shot to death.

From official release/information:

Product Description: 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.

With Lord of the Wings, readers can look forward to another zany Meg Langslow mystery--this one filled with Halloween spirit and suspense.
