As only Meg Langslow knows, when it comes to crime-solving, sometimes you just have to
wing it.

Halloween has come to Caerphilly! And with it comes a series of ghosts, witches, zombies, superheroes, and other creatures flying about. As part of the town’s Goblin Patrol, it’s Meg’s job to assist the police if the town’s spooky festivities spin out of control. Which is exactly what happens when a dead body turns up in the woods. Soon it’s up to Meg and her fellow goblins to keep calm, carry on with all the costumed revelers, and unmask a criminal who is hiding in plain sight. Will she solve the crime before the town’s creepy Halloween scavenger hunt ends--or will the killer take flight and vanish into the night sky?

“With Lord of the Wings, Donna Andrews has crafted a holiday-themed cozy...you can revel in the pageantry and solve a cleverly plotted mystery.”—Criminal Element
“[This] series gets better all the time.” —Booklist
