The Ghoul of Getty Street

 Seventh grader Thomas Avalon has a hobby that takes him into some rather dark places. Ghosts? Aliens? He has seen it all.

Together with his best friend Rhapsody he begins to investigate the case. But for once in his career of investigating the paranormal, he may just be in over his head...

Their holiday soon turns into a nightmare when they run into a gang of ruthless, heavily armed poachers. The mystery deepens: what is hidden in the tool shed next to the house? Why is the farm manager suddenly so evasive about it? Why does it look more and more as if their uncle is involved in organized crime?
